Better late than never, as this week's show is a bit behind, but the news doesn't stop and neither does our discussion of downloads vs physical media. Keeping the format war news up front, no one seems to be surprised that Circuit City mistakenly marked HD DVD players as clearance items and Onkyo's long over-due rebadge, may not come at all. We caught the Super Bowl, but didn't catch HD DVD's commercial, but it's not like we haven't seen that commercial before -- but what is new is the talk of a Sony/Fox conspiracy to deprive Americans of their HD DVD. We did enjoy the Super Bowl though, it's not every day you get to witness the greatest choke in NFL history, and in HD. Unfortunately not everyone got to see the game, thanks to some technical difficulties. Last up, Lost
is back, so Ben tries to get everyone to join in, but it's not like you have much of a choice thanks to the limited selection courtesy of the WGA strike. And finally TiVo is killing the Series3, but we want to know what's going to fill the void left of those wanting more than the TiVo HD can provide.
