So, here's a strange one. Twice now I've recorded a show (Storage wars) on A&E, and the show starts off in HD, but after a commercial break about 15 minutes into the show, when the show comes back it has changed to SD? It must be an A&E issue, because my DVR continues to record and display HD perfectly on all channels....including A&E. In fact, if I stop the Storage Wars recording and navigate to the A&E channel as a 'live' feed, the pictures are HD. I can spool back in the recording and see HD pictures, until a specific commercial break, at which point everything goes SD? Is it possible that the Broadcaster has switched to SD to accommodate it's commercials and then forgot to switch back? I can't think of another explanation.
