I don't think this is currently possible. I would like to
record both as well. A quick-n-dirty method might be to just
modify the HD descriptions to add something like "[HD]" and
also clear the programid column, then it wouldn't be detected
as a duplicate.
A better option would be to make the needed changes to the
scheduler, but this would have to be optional. When I had
a more dependable HD setup, I always wanted the HD recorded
and not the SD when both were available. At the moment I'm
using CATV HDTV which isn't as dependable as the aerial.
