The most professional HD podcast in the business is back again, this week leading off with some 3D news after the launch of 3net and ESPN 3D 24/7, as well as last week's 3D Creative Arts Awards. Afterwards we discuss our favorite Valentines Day gifts, which this year were Netflix on the Boxee Box and a new FiOS DVR Manager app for iPhone, as well as the possibility of Apple TV and Google TV as gaming platforms. Still, the best news of the week had to be a release confirmation for Pulp Fiction on Blu-ray along with other Miramax flicks, while Tron: Legacy and Taxi Driver came along for the ride. iTunes, Redbox and Fox squabbles brought up the rear before we pondered what the best receiver you can find for $600 is, and even a bonus geek rant about why no one has built a better remote yet.
