It is there so that you can control auto-transcoding based on
the type of recorder that was used.  For instance on my system if I
have auto-transcoding turned on on all my shows that come on on the
major OTA networks.  I enable auto-transcode for my HD air2pc cards
and disable auto-transcode on the recording profiles for my AVerMedia
M179 cards.  So if a particular show gets recorded in HD on my OTA
air2pc cards then it gets transcoded down, but if it got bumped to
a lower-priority M179 tuner and recorded off of the OTA station via
cable then it doesn't bother transcoding since it's already low-def.
