On this edition of the Engadget HD Podcast, we cover the format war, we know, surprise, surprise. Seriously, we give Fox and Samsung a hard time for leaving customers in the cold with their latest titles, and try to decide who's really to blame. We talk about how silly the Netflix numbers are and as well as Panasonic's Blu-ray claims. DirecTV keeps rolling out new HD channels, so we keep talkin' about them and Ben gets on his soap box about stretch-o-vision. Finally we bring it all home with Steve's most anticipated feature in his next HDTV; clap and wave control.
