I have a 722K. When I look at the Program Guide in 'My Channels' and 'All Channels', my local channels are only in High Definition. I don't see a Standard Definition available.

I do see both regular SD and HD for all my other channels. For example, Channel 105 (USA) is displayed in both.

While I like to watch HD, I prefer to record in SD to save disk space.

When I view the Dish app on my Android phone, I see both SD and HD listed for my local channels.

Is there a setting for this?

Thanks for your time!

If you go to Menu-Preferences-Guide Format, you can change it so the guide will show both the HD and SD channels :D
