I'm trying to figure out how to view if multiple UV's are coming from an Alembic file. I unpacked the node and found the UV view. I don't see any options to switch UV sets. This is for Houdini 16.5.405 any suggestions?

there is a dropdown in the top/right corner of the UV view that allows you to switch among all attributes marked as Texture Coordinate as well as any attributes named uv, uv2, … if present on the current geometry

if you don't see your attribute there, you can use Attribute Create with Write Values off to mark it as Texture Coordinate using the type dropdown
or using setattributetypeinfo() VEX function:
setattribtypeinfo(0, "vertex", "myvectorattrib", "texturecoord");
//or for point attribs
setattribtypeinfo(0, "point", "myvectorattrib", "texturecoord");

Thanks Tomas it looks like the Alembic isn't recognizing multiple UVs. Since I don't see them in the UV view.
