Engadget HD Podcast 244 - 04.12.2011

Trent Wolbe

Remember when we used to talk about HDTVs, HTPCs and Blu-ray discs? Consider this week's podcast a throwback with TV news from Toshiba up front, followed by word of cheaper 3D glasses from Samsung, Next up we have some Media Center related news as we take a look at the redesigned InfiniTV 4 and consider the possibilities of ShowAnalyzer 2.0. Of course, there's no way we can get away from news of Netflix, Blockbuster and iPad apps but judging from the poll results, we're guessing most of you won't mind. Finally we talk about Tron: Legacy and a couple of our favorite selections coming to Blu-ray this summer.
