It's just the two of us this week as Matt flies off to Hawaii for his Honeymoon, but the show must go on. As I am sure you have noticed we are a few days late, we'll try not to make a habit of it. We eventually start out with Ben's favorite topic the new HD TiVo and other than a few programming topics it's all HD DVD vs Blu-ray. Blu-ray had nothing but bad news this week, but we look forward to their press event this Friday in hopes of something exciting. Ben voices his concern and we talk about what Blu-ray has to do to stay on track.
