Engadget HD Podcast 229 - 01.04.2011

Oh, can you smell that in the air, yep, it's the first of the CES pre-announcements and the PR machines of Vizo, Samsung and LG just can't wait to get things rolling. This of course brings up the first, of what is probably many, discussions about about passive glasses 3DTVs. What might be more exciting to some though is the news that LCDs will be pushing themselves beyond the old 65-inch barrier and we only hope that plasmas will be there soon too -- with consumer priced models that is. CES isn't all we had to talk about from the past few weeks, as we also pondered why it is taking so long for ESPN3 to come to the Xbox 360 for Time Warner Cable and Bright House customers as well as how fascinated we are by the fact that we just now got a RF standard for home theater gear; really?
