CES is over and things are getting back to normal around Engadget. This of course means more format war news, which is really heating up after the Warner defection. So we discus the hardware and software sales impact of the move, as well as speculate where we might go from here. Then we go format agnostic and discuss next-gen audio codecs and the dual format player the BD-UP5000. We finish things up by discussing the impact on the industry from the first consumer component capture card. Finally we talk Apple TV and the quality of HD downloads in general.
