 this case, make them both be 'SCIFI' and the SD and the HD programs will
 be considered the same, even though they are marked as generic.
 Actually that doesn't work.  For example, in my area we have OPB (Oregon
 Public Broadcasting) and OPBHD.  They have the same basic programming (for
 example the show Nova) but different schedules.  The HD channel will
 replay Nova a number of extra times the SD doesn't get.
