Record in HD Only
Glad to hear you're enjoying the first couple of days with the 630.
To set a recording in HD only, here's what you do:
After setting the Recording Event (e.g. pressing "Record new episodes" or "Record all episodes"), press MENU, then go to "PVR", then "Options".
Find the Recording Event (show) you want to customize, and press ENTER.
You'll have a bunch of options. In this case, the one you want is "Channels". You can set it to "All channels", "SD only", "HD only", or "Ch. XYZ only", where XYZ is the channel you were originally on when you set the Recording Event.
Set "Channels" to "HD only", press GO BACK to save and GO BACK again to exit the PVR Options menu. The HDPVR will replan, and reschedule according to your new preferences.
You can also toggle between "New episodes" and "All episodes" in this menu, change the Priority, add the Start Early/End Late buffers, Keep a certain number of episodes, or automatically protect all recordings to prevent auto cleanup.
We recommend you always take a moment to customize your Recording Events after first setting them - that will ensure exactly what you want is always recorded.
