Engadget HD Podcast 057 - 11.07.2007

Trent Wolbe
Up this week on the Engadget HD Podcast is more format war news. It comes in groups, and a big one this week at that. What's different about this week is that we've invited Chris White (aka Xyzzy) a proponent of HD DVD to join in on the conversation in an attempt to add a little more red perspective. Chris does a great job of keeping Ben in check and ensure that the red team's victories this week are not played down. It's not all format war news though -- well almost -- we do cover a few general HD news topics this week as well.
