This day late edition of the Engadget HD podcast has some Blu-ray news for a change as we discuss the addition of DTS-HD to the PS3, while at the same time we wonder if it matters that the PS3 still won't bitstream TrueHD and DTS-HD. PS3 fans aren't the only one though, as Blu-ray fans using their PCs for playback don't have access to bitstream either -- or full quality LPCM for that matter. Lastly we cover DISH's nightmare week as it learned AMC-14 was a total loss, the very same week it lost yet another appeal to TiVo.
