Re: [HD] Maybe this means more HD will follow...

Unless I'm missing somethng,
nothing significant is going to happen till FiOS replaces the MPEG2 only older STBs and DVRs with newer STBs that support MPEG4.
Then they can deliver all the channels delivered in MPEG4 as MPEG4 and gain more space.
The only other option is to do like other cable systems and re compress channels to fit more HD channels in the QAM channel.

And they'll gain even more space by eliminating SD simulcast channels for SD only boxes as I believe all the MPEG4 boxes do HD.
