Right, or if you apply the proferred patch, it produces a new page full
of canned searches (which can be easily added to by adding a line to
includes/canned.php) including a search for all HDTV programs.
More interesting though is the search for HDTV non-series programs, since
once you know what series are in HD, the movies and specials are all you
are likely to want to browse again for a while. Though it's true that
sports are considered series, so you might want to make a different
canned search which includes sports, specials and movies.
Realize as well that unless you have an HD source, you will not see
any listings. This search only finds things _you_ can watch in HD, so
if you don't have any HD channels in your lineup, you will not see
any programs. You can add HD channels to your lineup without getting them
but that's risky in other ways.
