I don't know which HD STB you have, but typically you could set up "Favorites" on the STB that only consist of HD channels and then only access them with your channel up/down buttons. I do this with a Hughes E86 STB for example. Another possibility is to program FAVs on the MX-500 to access these channels directly.
