Engadget HD Podcast 196 - 06.2.2010

Trent Wolbe

No guests this week, but plenty of HD topics like our favorite HD sources, Apple's latest play in the living room, and Summer HD programming. We of course talk a little 3D including DirecTV's 3D preparations and ESPN 3D's expectations. TiVo seems to be the company we love to hate so we scratch our head trying to think of why Best Buy would want a TiVo interface on a TV and not a DVR. Finally we talk a little HD 101 and overscan and what might happen to our TVs if congress changes the telecom laws.
