Wow what a show this week. You wouldn't know for looking at it, but there was a lot to cover and this show ended up being in contention for the longest on record. Which partly because we just couldn't stop talking about Media Center's new ability to record without DRM from CableCARD. But there was also plenty of talk about RVU, Managed Copy and DVRs in general. At one point we even took issue with claims by the chat room and really let 'em have it -- but we doubt we got through to them. We could go on and one about the other topics, but really, you should just have a listen for yourself. It'll be a good listen too as the man who loves every TV show, explains why he even watches shows he doesn't like, yes really.
