We're really getting back in the groove now, as we crank out our third weekly podcast in a row. This week we cover a few of the format war announcements at IFA, as well as a few new TVs. We talk about HD marketing mubo-jumbo and our latest feature. We're also getting excited about all the new HD channels coming online, and of course football season is under way.
