BBCA HD is on for VHO7.
When was the last time a channel or channels were added to multiple VHOs at the same time?

BBC HD is live in VHO 4.

The FiOS STB sees it but no show guide yet.

The Ceton InfiniTV card/Windows Media Center doesn't see it at all yet.

Zap2It has it in their listings, so I expect to see it on my Ceton card soon!

Happy days are here again! LOL

Yes, the VOD Folder will be good. I am sure it will appear within the next couple days. (I hope)

I am watching Gangs of New York as well. I love how BBC America is 1080, and not 720. You can def tell the difference between the two.

Why am I still getting test patterens on 594 and 596? Are they going to be adding another channel or two?

We knew it would be. As that poster said here a few months ago, Verizon is not putting any mainstream channel on MPEG-4 yet. They dug their own grave with the old boxes.

Noticed very good PQ on 689 last night.

But I will be an unhappy camper if Verizon doesn't deliver the PAC-12 network by mid-September for the first USC football game scheduled.

H.264 was also known as AVC. H.xxx is the ITU-T name and AVC, HEVC, etc. is the MPEG name. It's just like IEEE 1394\Firewire\iLink

There are 2 feeds? What resolution are the other cable and satellite providers showing at?

He was talking about the difference in BBCA being a 1080i channel vs 720p channel.
