Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012This week's podcast runs a little longer than normal, but only because we've got so much to discuss. From Ben's review to the new Dish Hopper whole-home DVR to the latest Windows Media Center news from Ceton. There's a little bit of everything also, from talk of high-framerate 3D to Dolby's new Atmos surround sound setups, and even a juicy rumor about where TWC TV will touch down next. Just in case that's not enough, we pause to consider a future full of 145-inch 8K plasma TVs. Press play and come dream along with us.
