Engadget HD Podcast 085 - 05.10.2008

No, your eyes and ears aren't playing tricks on you, we're rolling out this installment early. Summer's here, and some folks (not us) like to spend vacation time outside of their light-controlled, soundproofed media rooms. So rather than make you go a week without a podcast, we're back into the studio early. We talk a bit about Blu-ray releases and Toshiba's continuing HD-DVD support (way to go, Toshiba!). But the highlight of the week was Pioneer's show in NYC -- new Blu-ray decks, receivers, plasmas and even a projector. We're also gearing up for The Cable Show next week, where CableLabs will be giving tru2way top billing. Finally, ATSC has real reason to celebrate its 25th birthday -- the analog shutoff is right around the corner, especially if you're in Wilmington, NC. We'll be back on our regular schedule in a couple of weeks, guys!
