Engadget HD Podcast 086 - 05.28.2008

Trent Wolbe
After an almost two week hiatus, we're back to try and add some insightful commentary to all the HD news. The Cable Show was the biggest thing going down, and in retrospect there wasn't much to it. But moving forward with tru2way is kind of interesting and we can't wait to see how it all turns out. At the same time the Blu-ray news is pretty slow right now, but we are looking forward to all the releases in June. Blu-ray isn't the only way to watch movies these days as downloads are ramping up with a new player in the way of Ruku via Netflix, but we're not impressed. The other thing that doesn't impress us is the new ESPN WiFi remote, which we just don't understand, while at the same time wish the remote had a better button layout.
