I assume you really meant you recorded in _HD_ and transcoded to _SD_.

I wrote a script that is called as a user job.  One of the parameters I 
pass is the "recording group".  I use the recording group to control 
what resolution to transcode to in my script.

I use mencoder to do the actual transcoding.

Works great.
