It was a slow week for HD news and the list of topics this week reflects that. Of course this doesn't stop us from going on for 45 minutes. With only nine topics this week, we can't believe six of 'em are about the format war, but they are. We do provide a little insight into the controversy surrounding the Transformers numbers and Ben gives a few first impressions of an HD-A3 that's in for review. We round things out with LG's new super black plasmas and finally the fantastic TiVo news.
