When you delete a recording, one of the options is to allow re-recording the show.

If I had previously recorded something and it's still 
in my list of recorded programs, then of course it is 
not going to be re-recorded by default. However, if 
my existing recording is in standard definition, and 
it is being re-shown in high definition, I would like 
to have the HD version record. (For example, in 
December "Polar Express" was shown on a non-network 
station, which for me is SD from the DirecTV box, and 
subsequently re-shown in HD on ABC which I could have 
picked up over the air.) 

A similar question - I might have something recorded 
on a channel that is not commercial free, and then it 
gets re-broadcast on one that is commercial free. 
(For example a movie that was shown on a "normal" 
station and then is re-shown on Encore.) I would want 
to get the commercial free recording because it would 
be more likely the original movie, not edited for 

Can Myth be configured to automatically record a 
program again in these situations, either as a power 
search or in some other way?
