Adding +1 to the HD channels should do what you want in all cases
except possibly some very complicated, corner cases.  To explicitly
record from an SD channel in 0.24, you'd have to use a custom rule to
select the specific channel or SD.  In 0.25, you'll have more
flexibility.  You can setup filters to exclude or include SD and HD as
desired and not have to resort to custom rules.
