Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012This week's news includes the rare Common File Format for UltraViolet resurfacing, as well as a new DHD initiative from Fox that could push downloadable movies forward faster than ever before. That's before we even dive into all the news from CEDIA 2012 and take a peek at the just-released Ceton Companion mobile app for Windows Media Center. Also included: where our NFL Pick 'em selections went horribly, horribly wrong and more 84-inch 4K displays than you can shake a stick at.
