Engadget HD Podcast 191 - 05.04.2010

Trent Wolbe

If you hate 3D talk then great news as we only have one 3D topic on this week's show and it's about how Roger Ebert hates 3D too. Luckily we don't spend too much time on it, and move on to fun things like Windows 7 Media Center and the fact that it is now available on Embedded devices. On that same note we talk about what Google TV might be about and what changes the FCC might make to the CableCARD rules, and the introduction of AllVid. After that it's all stats, surveys, polls and opinions as we run down the latest on the Avatar vs The Dark Knight sales contest, Nielsen says people with HDTVs can finally watch HD and discuss if 1080p is enough resolution for everything.
