On the eve of the presidential election, we still got together to talk up the latest in HD news. What easily turned out to be the topic of the week was Netflix. We covered the HD announcements, the TiVo partnership, and finally, Watch Instantly for Mac users. And although you'd think we got enough downloads vs discs talk in our round table last week, think again, as we rehash a bit about our latest poll on the debate, as well as the recent misguided predictions about the death of Blu-ray. Finally, we finish up with a little Slingbox HD streaming and of course the required mention of Windows Media Center.
