More control of SD vs HD

I think it would be an awesome feature if you added more control when the program makes the decision of downloading HD or defaulting to SD. If you have HD selected as the preferred resolution, and an SD copy becomes available first, it would be awesome if you had the option to automatically recheck after a certain amount of time and then download the HD copy, in addition to the SD copy that was already downloading. An alternative, both options being included being the ideal, would be to have a variable time to wait to see if an HD copy became available before starting the SD download.

    Hi Lucas,

    Actually, that's how TVShows works: if you subscribe in HD and the SD version becomes available first, TVShows won't download it immediately, it only downloads it if after X hours (18 by default, you can change it) the HD version still hasn't been published.

    If your TVShows doesn't wait for the HD version, it can be because you have checked the "additional sources" option in the preferences, this option means you prefer to have whichever version is available first.
