Not true, it's available on all channels. I've downloaded programmes 
such as Saturday Kitchen and Highlands using hvfhd. I suspect hvfhd is 
available when hlshd is available, otherwise it will fall back to 
hlsvhigh/hvfsd (not flashhd).

get_iplayer --info -pid xxxxxxxx
will advise what modes are available for a particular programme.

I've seen a list of the various modes somewhere, I'll post it when I 
find it.
