That's a good point. It applies here in the US too. We keep a few 
episodes of the Simpsons around as entertainment filler. Of course, the 
recent seasons are in HD. But the many, many older seasons are in 4:3 
SD. I've been just recording everything on the HD channel. If I could, 
I'd prefer to record the older episodes on the SD channel and save a bit 
of storage space. Is there any way in 0.24.1 to do this?
