Ah, yet another technology that looks oh-so-promising from the onset, but quickly becomes dulled when wading through the technical jargon required to understand it. So is the case with digital television broadcasting, but Harris Corporation and LG Electronics don't seem to mind the complexities invo

HD DVD may not have had a lot of releases this week but that doesn't mean that the format is slowing down. Three major studios have announced a ton of HD DVD titles that will be released before the end of the year. Oh and there is 2 Blu-ray titles mixed in there too. (labeled as such) HD DVD seems t

Camcorderinfo.com got their grubby little hands on the Canon HV10 and produced the first review. Canon's first venture into the high-def camcorder market has sparked a lot of attention from the online media but how good is their first camcorder? We won't keep you waiting as you would probably scroll

It has been a few weeks since we have had the chance to do one of these but luckily Apple has been too busy as well to update the site with loads of content. They have only added a few new high-def movie trailers to their site and even though today might be a bad day for bandwidth (for Apple - not

File this under \"wish it was ATSC not DVB-T.\" Miglia has produced what appears to be the first digital TV reception card for the ExpressCard slot. DVB-T means that this guy will not work Stateside but in most European counties and well, that is where it is being sold for 150 Euros so it better use

Universal has gone and done it. Dr. Seuss is coming to HD DVD and he is going to make all the little children cry when he steals Christmas. The Ron Howard/Jim Carry classic is set to come out on November 21 loaded with Dobly Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 on a 1.85:1 1080p disc. This

Georgie didn't forgot about all the Star War/high-def nut over in the UK. Sky HD has worked out an arrangement with LucasFilm to allow all six episodes to be shown via the provider. There isn't any announcement of when or where but you know, who cares? All that matters is all of our peeps over the

Logitech finally spent some cash with their design department and updated the look of their dated Harmony remotes. The previous high-end design wasn't anything pretty but it did function very well in it's conventional form factor. If you have never used one of these remotes, they have built in macr

This is what we have been missing in the HDTV game. We have seen HDTV cameras in newsrooms, studios, helicopters and even on the bow of a speed boat, but we have yet to see HDTV by way of one of these helmet cams. For good reason too as who would want one of those monster cameras on their head? But

Sony just keeps trudging along with these Blu-ray titles. They may not release the most titles or even the best, but no one can say that they are not contributing to the format. Next up to be added to the calender is Little Man for a day-and-date release of November 7. The other title this time arou

What's on the minds of every DIRECTV HD customer these days. We're thinking \"When the blasted are we going to get more high-def stations?\" Well, we have good news and bad news. First the good: DIRECTV is, in fact, launching two new satellites. Cool. The bad news is that they aren't until next sprin

Remember SED HDTVs? You know, the type that takes all the benefits of CRT technology and crams 'em into a flat-screen package. We are sure that most of you had already given up and moved on like after that chick stood you up at the senior prom. Should have waited a little longer though cowboy as Ca

Don't know how this slipped under our high-def radar but Gefen introduced a 8x1 DVI switch a few days back aimed for the truly HD obsessed. This monster can take eight different 1080p-enabled DVI connections and output 'em via a single DVI connection. Yeah, we know. DVI is so 2005 but don't forget

Hopefully all those issues that Sky HD users where having will now by gone thanks to a much-needed firmware update. Users are claiming that the update fixes bugs, stability issues, the EPG, and video transportation. Hopefully this update is already downloaded into owner's boxes and to check, simply

TVPredictions.com recently listed five reasons HDTV will succeed and now Mr. Philip Swann spouts out five reasons that it might boom. The first time around we agreed with his reasons just not in the way they were ordered, and the same thing goes for this time too. In truth we just have an issue with

DIRECTV has a problem with bandwidth and is taking it out on TNT HD. Sundays over on the high-def version of TNT are usually reserved for low-quality HD movies but not for the rest of football seasons. It seems like DIRECTV is shutting off the station to provide more space for their NFL Sunday Ticke

We have a hard time calling this contraption a 'player' but by definition, it plays back both Blu-ray and HD DVD's and therefore, we digress; it is a player, just not a conventional set-top version. Basically, this computer is equipped with the NEC HD DVD drive from Toshiba's HD A1 set-top player (

Is Oprah going HD next year? We hope so for the sake of total HD domination but the source of this info is a bit sketchy. There is a good amount info from this thread (and website) but, still, we just don't know. There is something about information coming from a random forum without a source that m
