Engadget logoThings are starting to get interesting again in the world of Windows Media Center now that Windows 7 is done, so we spent some time talking about what's new and what it will take to get people to use it. According to the HD Guru there is a new king in town and it's Panny's latest plasma, but who to believe? You'll have to have a listen to see where you land. Last up we talk a little Blu-ray and about the on going format war in China as well as the latest Michael Bay IMAX sequence controversy.
