Hopefully once the Olympics conclude, these open QAM slots will be used for new MPEG4 HD additions in English.

Or they'll be saved for the 2014 Winter Games which follow these Olympics by less than 18 months.

All I know is I sure am glad I got my test patterns!

In the guide for VHO3 but not tuneable, even after an STB reset.

Identical result VH06 / DAC 5

Note see VHO info in FAQ. »Verizon Online FiOS FAQ »What is a VHO?
VHO6 and VHO 6a are now in a new DAC.

I am not sure if these channel adds are done at the VHO or at the DAC level, but I would guess VHO.

Confirmed in VHO 4 / DAC 3 (DC metro) as well. Color test bars and 1000 Hz test tone on the above mentioned channels. Looks promising

There are no additional channels for the Winter Olympics.

Just in time to watch the sexy Hope Solo and the womens Olympic Team play France tomorrow.

I agree with you there, bohratom. Hope Solo is sexy. Being a Brunette is a plus, and those piercing eyes she has. Amazing.

NBCSN has DD 5.1 audio for the Olympics events.
A big upgrade from the simulated DD 5.1 audio they usually broadcast on sporting events.

The Soccer Channel however has simulated DD 5.1 which is odd since NBCSN has DD 5.1 audio.

There are no commercials on the NBC Soccer Channel.

BTW I was hoping the Olympic widget would offer replays of Olympic Events but it seems it will only have the highlights. I know I can watch the replays online but would have been nice to do it via the stb.

I'll have to check the on-demand later to see if they will offer rebroadcast of entire events.

I noticed this afternoon the video on NBCSN was freezing. The local cable ads played fine.
The problem seems to have gone away around 5:20pm.

The VZ Soccer & BB channels are pretty good, but....

As much as I hate Cox, I was over at my in-law's house and Cox has a really cool Olympic "hub" channel.....it shows you all of the other channels currently showing Olympic events and puts each one in a box on the screen. So when I had that channel up there were like 6 channels running coverage (e.g. Bravo had a regular show on, so it did not appear, but others like NBC, MSNBC, etc were on) and each was displayed in a thumbnail box.

The really cool part is that the thumbnail boxes show the real time video feed of each channel, so you can see what event is being broadcast or if there is a commercial on that channel. Then, when you arrow over one of the boxes with the remote, it actually changes to the channel's feed and you can hear the audio of the channel. You then simply press Ok and the tv jumps to that channel, awesome.

I wish VZ carried this Olympic "hub" channel, so cool IMO. I wonder if Cox built this themselves, or if it's a 3rd party service offered to all cable companies.

I have seen several hub setups like this (I think on Cox).
If I remember right, they had news and sports as well.

We actually have an app like this -- if you go to the "What's Hot Now" (or some such label) on the main menu, one of the options shows up a grid of what FIOS determines what's the most popular programs in your area, and most of them are actually showing the live feed from the channel. No joke -- go check it out.
