How can the listings be wrong for such a high profile event?

If these flags are so unreliable, should mythtv really rely on them
for scheduling?

Should I go through an manually raise the channel priority for all
channels which are HD channels rather than relying on the listing?  I
don't really want to have to do that, since I would prefer to not
record native SD content that has been upscaled for an "HD" channel.
That just seems like a waste of disk space.

What are the rest of you doing?
