If we're talking about adding a new channel then agree, don't automatically put it in any favorites. But if we're talking about a SD channel getting a HD version then yes I'd like to see both favorites and any series links get automatically changed to the HD version.
I can agree with this post.
Thing is, if your using favorites and lets just say IFC is selected and Hide SD Duplicates... When IFCHD goes live, it should be in that favorites list. How it could programmatically work is by looking at the already existing flag in the guide data that tells the system what SD channel its paired with.
The system obviously knows to hide AMC in SD for example if SD duplicates is selected. In my market our big locals are 3,6,10,29. The system correctly hides the SD (or HD) copy of them depending on the setting of "hide SD(/HD) duplicates". So half of the logic is already there which is half the battle for identification purposes.
The other issue is that the banners advertising that the new channels are in HD are HIDDEN if you don't have the HD channels added in the first place. So by default how would one even know to add the HD channels if the banners advertising them are hidden unless you add the channels! Moot point then!
