I have a VIP 612 and subscribe to HD. My wife does a lot of recording and there is not enough time for her when recording in HD. The program guide only shows the HD channels for any channel that has HD. It shows SD for channels that have no HD. Is there any way to show the SD channels for stations that have HD feeds? She would like the additional recording time and doesn't mind that it wouldn't be HD.

Set your guide to "MY CHANNELS" instead of MY HD CHANNELS.

I don't know the menu structure for the 612, but there also might be a setting in the Guide configuration menu that will show "all channels" and not just SD or HD ones.
Seeing you are in Kentucky... I'm guessing you might be on eastern arc... and it is worth noting that for some channels (notably the locals) you might not have an option to record an SD equivalent.

THANKS for both your replies. Setting to All Channels didn't work but I was able to go in to Guide Setup and changed it to show both. No SD on locals but SD on all others as well as HD. Wife is happy.
