IIRC, there's an option somewhere in the GUI to give HD recordings a priority
boost. You could give your SD tuner a higher priority (say, by +1) but
compensate by giving HD recordings a higher priority (by +1 or perhaps even
+2). I don't recall exactly where I saw these options, but I'm pretty sure
they were accessible from the frontend configuration screen (that is, they
aren't part of mythtv-setup, where input priorities are set). I've not
experimented with this method of doing this, but it sounds like they may be
the way for you to go.
