More "up to date"?  You mean that the listings data is different for the
two?  Or, are you actually talking about differences in the lineups at
SD?  (It sounds like you should be using one lineup at SD across
multiple video sources--assuming there are some channels available
through one input type that aren't available through the other--or even
one video source (if both input types can receive identical channels).

Any chance you've enabled EIT on the QAM inputs?  If so, as it
overwrites the SD data, differences in the listings data are likely to
cause the scheduler to see the shows as different, so recordings won't
"fall through" from one input type to another.
