With the power search (custom record) there is an option for "Only
shows marked as HDTV". Your best bet is to do this through the
frontend. While you can also set this up using mythweb, in order to do
so you need to remember the SQL syntax and column names to fill in,
and what fields to fill it into, so it's not nearly as easy to do

However, the above option will NOT record non-HD shows, even if they
are broadcast on an HD channel. That may or may not be what you want.
