It must be The Cable Show week, because we've got lots of news regarding your local TV providers, from new FCC regs allowing for Selectable Output Control, a new tru2way guide from Cox to debate over how people use DVRs and what the future of TV is. We've got some Blu-ray chat as well, from the newly 5.1's classic Psycho to DVD2BLU changes, plus what's coming up -- and what isn't -- from DirecTV. We'll wrap things up with Samsung and Panasonic's 3D glasses conundrum, new Energy Star requirements and a bit of dreaming about the HDTV we will have, or the home theater we wish we had.
