I wonder if BHN kills an SDV channel signal as soon as everyone has tuned away or if it has an expiration. If there was a time out on the signal, one thing I might try is to setup a manual recording before my recordings typically start (since 99% of the stuff I record is between 8pm-11:30pm) so that the tuning request is sent and hope that the Tivo can tune to that channel more quickly when it records what I actually want. But, if BHN kills the signal as soon as everyone tunes away, that won't work.
Not that I buy that totally anyway - I'm pretty much grasping at straws. I have a hard time believing I could be the only person in my area tuning to Comedy Central HD when a new episode of South Park or The Daily Show airs. Or maybe I am and HD isn't as prevalent as I thought...
It definitely picks them up about half the time. And the good thing about the majority of shows I record on those SDV HD channels is that they are replayed multiple times, so I get more than one shot.
