Ticket #63 (closed enhancement: fixed)
HD channels diverging from SD

Channel 7 has started showing alternate programming on the HD channel. Ten will follow in December. http://www.sevencorporate.com.au/_uploads/Files/7-hd-16-october.pdf http://www.ebroadcast.com.au/enews/ten-hd-140907.html
This obviously will require a fairly fundamental change to shepherd's method of generating HD channel guides as they no longer be a simulcast of the SD channel. Presumably this divergence will mean HD channels are listed as separate channels in tv guides that can be grabbed instead of the current method of flagging content from the SD channel as HD
I am unable to find an online tv guide that shows the alternate programming in SevenHD but I presume this is temporary. (One would expect we'd be seeing SevenHD listed as a separate channel on Yahoo7 by now though!, did 7 forget to tell their partner???) As I find them I'll post URL's
PS thanks for a great grabber.
