Circling back to the OP's issue.  Khanh, this means you can simply
change freqid to get what you want in master/0.25.  For example, you
can set freqid to 707 for channel 7 and you'll get the HD channel when
you choose channel 7 in the EPG or live TV.  And becuase freqid is
user editable, at least in the mythtv-setup editor, you won't incur
Mike's wrath! :)
