Are the recordings and livetv coming from the same capture card? If so,
you probably just need to adjust the recording profiles. It's under
Settings, TV Settings, Recording Profiles, there is a Live TV, High
Quality, and Low Quality profile. Make the Live TV profile match the
High Quality one, and you should be good to go. The settings do affect
the size of the recorded file, so if you are tight on disk space, you
may need to do some tweaking to find the right balance of quality over size.
