Join the Engadget HD Podcast live on Ustream at 8:30PM ET

It's Tuesday, which is time for the Engadget HD Podcast and we hope you'll join us for the live recording at 8:30PM. No big news to kick off the show this week, but a good quarter for primetime rating will have to do. There is a new wireless box from DirecTV to discuss and of course Netflix, Aereo, Chromecast news -- like just about every week. We finish up with a few tidbits about TiVo, Mohu, CNNx and some content for virtual reality. If you'll be joining us, take a peek at the topics after the break and then get ready to participate in the live chat.
