Even if you "forget old" (which you can also do from "Manage
Recordings|Previously Recorded"--or something to that effect) in the
frontend, it will not record an episode that exists in your current
recordings if the recording rule specifies "Current Recordings" or "All
Recordings" for "Check for Duplicates In," so you'd have to change the
rule to use "Previous Recordings," too. That way after you delete the
episode from "Previous Recordings" (i.e. "forget old"), it won't be
found, so will be re-recorded. Then, just make sure you delete the
480x480 one when you get the 720x480 one... ;)
