Engadget HD Podcast 214 - 09.14.2010

Trent Wolbe

Are you ready for football? If the North American variant is not to your liking, you'll probably want to skip ahead because between true 5.1 finally arriving on Monday night, Sunday Ticket talk and an update on the EHD fantasy football league there's plenty to discuss. After that we move on to Boxee and its new Intel partnership, plus Google TV info and a couple of interesting demos from IDF sporting Windows Media Center Embedded. TiVo's trying something different to sell DVRs and we like the idea, while Panasonic jumps on the QWERTY remote bandwagon and Panasonic showed off a new high end camcorder recently. After that we discuss whether SSDs have a place in DVRs, what the SRS/Microsoft deal could mean for Netflix and close with a slew of 3D and Blu-ray news -- enjoy!
