[mythtv-users] Channels, video cards and scheduling

As I have said elsewhere I have just migrated a Debian Stable to Ubuntu 
Server 12.04 system. I have a NovaT 500 DVB card and a Pinnacle USB 
stick for recording HD.

In my old setup I scanned for channels with both the Nova T and 
separately again with the Pinnacle USB stick, and mythtv seemed to know 
that the NovaT did not have the HD channels.  By giving the Nova T a 
lower priority for the recording schedular, it would record all except 
HD programs, where the Pinnacle would be scheduled when a HD recording 
was requested.  By giving the specific HD channels higher recording 
priority, they would be chosen over non HD versions of the program.

I have just tried to replicate the same setup again, but its not 
working.  It appears the NovaT is being scheduled for HD programs.  How 
can I tell mythtv that the NOVA T cannot see the HD channels?
