    Try it out if you have a Bolt and let's see what happens. It's supposedly a QAM broadcast.

    From the DSLR boards:

    "The NASCAR 5/11 event at 7:30p in Kansas will be available in 4K on channel 1499– however, note that 1499 may not be active until the event starts. Broadcast by FS1 4k."

    Set a manual recording for 7:30 to 11 PM ET. There is no useful guide data for this blank channel.

    :D

    Video PID is showing "unknown" right now, but on screen it's showing 2160p.

    Appears to be a successful broadcast and test. The Diagnostics screen doesn't entirely know what to do with it, but it's recording and displaying.

    Will the bolt downrez if you don’t have a 4K tv? I’m not at home to test.

    I'm getting a black screen with a blue box saying "This channel is not authorized. Contact your cable provider for more information (V58)." I can hear the audio from the event though. This is on a Roamio btw.

    That would certainly present a hurdle in tuning/processing the 4K video.

    It works! Audio and video both working for me. Too bad I don't like NASCAR. :)

    I only have HD TV but Bolt is tuning program and is outputting normal HD. So, I guess it is down rezzing. Picture looks pretty damn good. Sound is better on regular FS1.

    Fios box won’t tune as it is not 4K

    I tried to record this on my Roamio just for fun. I recorded a 3-hour block from 7-10pm.

    It only recorded 6 minutes. Well, that's what the progress bar shows. And I can't FF past the 6min mark.

    I only get a Verizon Fios message screen (same that was present early in the afternoon) but right at that 6min mark the audio changes from some VZ muzak to the FOX Sports theme. It seems to be on a loop.

    I imagine maybe at 7:30 when the program began I'd hear the audio from the race but since I can't FF I didn't listen to the FOX Sports theme on the loop for 24 minutes to find out :)

    I did a quick comparison with the regular FS1 channel and didn't see much of a difference. Probably due to the scaling done by the bolt and/or tv or their compression. Just for the heck of it I tried to tune the channel on a mini and just got a black screen. Makes sense since it doesn't support 4k. But hey, at least it's a start.

    Looked fantastic! Eats DVR space like crazy though!

    Assuming it took up twice the storage space of 3 hrs of HD? Will there be a repeat?

    You didn’t state whether your TV is 4K, and if the BOLT otherwise outputs 4K to the TV from the supported streaming apps.

    Sorry, yes 4k TV and Bolt output 4K. Both looked good, just not much difference to me.

    Interesting. Did anyone record the whole thing, and how much space did it consume?

    What’s the math say, then? 28 GiB for the 3-hr recording? Can KMTTG offload it?

    Any future tests scheduled?
