Not too much format war news this time around. Time will tell whether it's a calm before the storm that is CES. Warner's HDM fiascos in the field continue, and where are the releases we've been waiting for anyways? We get excited about the potential for Media Center, and down on Harmony remotes. Seriously, we criticize because we see great potential in both products. We just love a good fight, and without format war news, we look at plasma vs. LCD for thrills. Whether you prefer one or the other, we talk about the benefits of having both in the marketplace -- it's just better for everybody that loves HD. And HD PQ seems to trump the actual content for many. Finally, we talk some PR -- whether or not Sony's seemingly early departure from the RPTV market was a PR slip, there's no doubt that NFL Network's simulcast of the Patriots vs. Giants game this Saturday is a coup. Happy New Year, everybody!
