Series recording sd/hd preference filter to hard nosed

When setting up a series recording, for example, Columbo appears in Hallmark and Hallmark HD.  I set up a series recording but select HD preferred instead of HallmarkHD only or of course SD because it is a popular rerun and appears on several different networks at various points of its 20 year run and I of course want those recorded as well.  So fine except for the fact that another channel that carries it, Cozi, is not available here in HD and the system refuses to automatically record it because of that.  This of course has been noticed with other programs, series, events.  If you switch to that channel during the show and try to set an auto recording, it accesses  your existing preset which stays exactly the same with the exception of now being able to select Cozi only which really defeats the purpose.  Can the embedded programming be modified to correct this issue?  A lovely update in the night?

Delete your original series recording first and then set it up through the guide.
