How can I record the same program in SD and HD

Once you have created the second event, and the software flags it as a duplicated/skipped event, click on the second duplicated recording from your guide. It will be marked with a X'd out bubble. It will then appear in the daily schedule as a skipped (duplicate) event. Select restore. The software will ask if you want to restore only this single event, or apply this selection to all events effected by this timer. Make your appropriate choice.
There are some programs which I would like to watch in HD for the best quality but would also like to keep a copy stored on my hard drive for later viewing. I don't want to use up all my storage with HD recordings so I would like the stored copy to be in SD format. However when I try to create a timer for the HD program from my OTA antenna and the same program from the satellite in SD, the guide doesn't allow the second recording claiming that it is a duplicate. Does anyone know how to get past this restriction?

The only way to have regular timers work like this (without having to restore every week) is to set a manual timer for one of them. i.e. set it to record on such and such a channel from 8:59 pm to 10:03 pm. In other words, set up a time based timer instead of a show based timer.
Hope that makes sense.
