I should have written "listing" rather than "creating". I don't think
the encoding quality has actually changed, but rather the bit rates
listed in the BBC metadata for HD programmes have changed to more
accurately reflect the encoding. get_iplayer uses the metadata values
to determine whether an HD version of a programme is available.
