Thanks Brad.  That worked well. Unfortunately I think "program.hdtv = 1" is too strict. I would like to include programs like "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" being broadcast on KOIN-HD, but it does not have the hdtv flag.  Is there anyway to specify the tuner instead?  I have an HDHomeRun and two PVR-150s.  Basically if its on a digital channel and its a holiday special I would like to capture it.
