[mythtv-users] Avoid HD-Recording

I'm sure there is somewhere you can setup rules - such as increasing
priority of programs flagged as "HD" so they are preferred over SD.
Ah, found it, it's under Setup -> Custom Priority Rules which is a
global setting. In there, there is a sample clause of HD programs
which inserts "program.hdtv > 0" as a clause.
I suppose you could create a rule that matches HDTV and reduces the
priority, but only if some other clause is in effect - perhaps have a
separate recordings group (is that the right terminology ?) for the
old B&W films and include that group as a clause ?
Then when scheduling a recording for such a film, specify that it has
to go into that special group, and the rule will take effect and
lower the priority for HD versions.
All assuming that HD is properly flagged of course !
