What led me down this path is that the Watch Recording shows a 720 icon 
for all the shows. I am not seeing 1080 even though CBS, WETA, etc 
broadcast in 1080.

I also noticed while testing this that manual record in mythweb seems to 
ignore the preferred input in 0.22RC1. All tuners were free, I selected 
tuner 5, but it recorded on 1. That is why I was always getting 720p 
since it was not manually recording from my selected input.
