The proper fix is to use the new MythTV event system to specify a script
to run after recording stops that changes the channel to a better channel.
Currently there's no distinction between "recording stopped and new
recording is starting on the same input" and "recording stopped and
input is not in use." Therefore, you have 2 options: either add a new
event for specifying that the input is not in use, or make a "smart"
script that can identify if the input is still in use (i.e. by using a
combination of a delay before changing the channel to SD, and a script
for both Recording started and Recording finished, and some state
information with proiper locking). The actual script is left as an
exercise to the reader.
