Not really sure where to put to thread thread since it is affecting two different DVR models my house. When I record any HD content on my local fox affiliate (not ota), despite my pass being set for HD versions of shows (sd hidden) it is recording in sd. But here is the weird part. Some commercials are in HD during the episode. Live TV is in HD. Even the station logo in the bottom corner is in hd. Just the recordings are not. happened with fringe on Friday and again tonight with all the animated shows. Checked the settings and nothing has changed in any season pass or box settings. I am at a loss as to what it's going on. In Phoenix and affiliate is ksaz.
