This is working great, I get all the little specials that are aired on
F1 weekends.  What I am struggling with is that my channel priority
rules are messing with the recording.

Here in AU, the F1 is shown live on the HD sports channel and later in
the evening it is re-run on the SD channel.  I have reduced the
priority of my HD channel, since I don't care too much for the extra
resolution and the storage space it needs (and the extra strain it
puts on my borderline FE when playing back).  Now though, my scheduler
has decided to record the SD showing later in the evening than the HD
showing that is live.

Is there any way to have a recording rule that tells the scheduler to
record the earliest showing, ignoring channel priority?
