A friend of the Engadget HD family comes to visit and in his honor we have the first ever Engadget HD Podcast recorded in the same room and while we didn't have the challenges that come with geographic diversity to overcome, we did have others like echo from two mics. We didn't let that stop us making a great show for you as we cover alot of HD news this week including: Apple TV, OLED, Dual Must Carry, CableCARD and of course the format war.
