Umm Define *live*.

ExpressVu's schedule looks exactly like NBC's and HDNets which is delayed by a day. (That's not live)

Damn you.. getting my hopes up and all that. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

"Live" on tape ... as some shows say. (Which is a dumb saying, because everything taped was once live, unless it's animation). yes, delayed by a day, unfortunately. But I'll still be watching.

I just went through the arduous task of scrolling ahead 24 hours on BEV's guide, and it looks like the bandwidth for 288 will come from putting TMN-HD and PPV-HD on hiatus for the duration of the Olympics' coverage. Excellent call! Way to go BEV! It's gonna be a great couple of weeks for HD!

To go ahead 24 hours easily, press "2", "4", and then the right arrow button.

I wish they'd do that with the HDVu whenever there's two programs available in prime time. I can't believe they're getting much revenue out of it. Personally, I have never, ever, ordered PPV on a weekday night when the most popular network shows are on and there's a better-than-even chance I'll fall asleep in the middle!
