We decided to kick off the new fall HDTV season with a little help, so we invited our friend Brent Evans from Geek Tonic on the show to fill us in on the new shows. But like us, Brent is also a HD geek, and had a thing or two to say about SageTV even though it wasn't on topic -- we don't mind one bit. After we got back on topic we talked up the new HD products from Sling and how we might use them, then once again we fell into the downloads vs disc debate as Vudu readies Blu-ray quality rentals and Blu-ray Discs start showing up in Red Box rental kiosks. Finally, we all talk up our favorite shows, including which we'll continue to watch from last year, as well as the ones we're planning on dedicating some DVR space to this year.
