When we last heard from XStreamHD, the company had grand plans
on streaming movies via satellite to some boxes
with great looking specs, Michael Douglas
and a non-functional CES booth
that failed to impress. Now we see that the company has licensed ARC audio processing for Dolby Digital Plus decoding, which presumably would come in handy -- if there were any content to decode. To be fair, there's still time for XStreamHD to meet its long-ago promised Q4 2008 release, but absent any of the "latest content from leading studios" the only audio that will get decoded is the sound of one hand clapping.
