We kick this week's show off a little differently -- by lamenting about Pioneer's plans for its plasma production. Next we talk up upcoming TiVo devices and DirecTV HD channels, and then move on to the format war -- which was really light. This seems to be a weird time for Blu-ray, as the real end of HD DVD draws near, there doesn't seem to be as many Blu-ray announcements as we'd expect. Who knows how long we'll have to wait for the remaining to studios to release Blu titles.
