    Signed up for reminders for all. Women's skeet might be a little difficult, as I have to leave the house by 9:45 to get to a shoot myself.

    If you hook the computer up via HDMI (or whatever) from your computer to the TV you could tape it.

    Will it be possible to view videos of the events after they are completed?

    Might be a good idea for anyone interested in live viewing or recording of these events to look up an Olympic schedule on the 'net for themselves and do a little time converting. The schedule in the lead post is misleading.

    For example... the women's skeet qualifications (first event on the list) begin at 0900 but the finals don't begin until 1400... but both of these are by London time. The east coast of the US is 5 hours earlier than that with and additional hour difference for each of the next 3 times zones.

    Just a detail...

    Give me a break...

    The times I posted are EST. See original post.

    - Watch Live (EST Time)

    The UK time would be 1:55p, if using the start time for women skeet 8:55a

    The 8:55 time (EST) is when NBC will start it's internet broadcast of the event.

    The women's skeet final and medal ceremony (There words not mine)

    If additonal footage is broadcast a win win for us!

    Thanks for the schedule.

    Some people will never happy. The longer I'm involved with trap the more complaining and whining that I hear

    I'm still trying to confirm air times, but the first thing I did this morning was set my TIVO for this Sunday's Women's skeet, both the qualification and final rounds . . . just in case I'm not able to stay up/get up and watch it live. I am so excited about the prospect of Kim Rhode bringing home yet another medal and making U.S. Olympic history. Think GOLD!!

    I can't tell you how fortunate I feel to be able to say that I had the opportunity to watch one of Kim's practice sessions a little more than a week ago. She is amazing and an incredibly down-to-earth nice, nice lady.

    GO TEAM U.S.A. and GO KIM !!!!

    OC,

    I am on the west coast and am a DIRECTV subscriber. This morning, after figuring out the time difference between here and London, I looked at the schedule for the 29th and found coinciding "shooting" events at 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. The schedule does not elaborate past the generic "shooting" title. I crossed my fingers and set it to record.

    Additionally, if you go to the NBCOlympics website posted above, you will see at the top "TV Listings." I maneuvered through that and learned that NBC Sports Network (603) will be airing (Pacific Time) Women's Skeet Finals on 7/29 from 10:30 to 10:50 a.m. and the Women's Trap Finals on 8/4, 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. I'll have to set those time slots to record as well.

    Finally, I shoot at Kim's "home field" and I'll do my best to confirm our viewing opportunities.
