Engadget HD Podcast 247 - 05.03.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week there were three shocking developments that rocked our world in the 24 hours before the podcast was recorded but we'll only deal with two of them -- SiliconDust's HDHomeRun Prime was certified by CableLabs and the Dish vs. TiVo DVR patent beef was settled for $500 million. Our mobile / tablet segment was also unexpectedly packed this week with developments from TiVo, HBO, the NFL and Epix. While Logitech tries to turn around the Revue, DirecTV might be launching a Netflix competitor and the X Games are back with even more 3D this time. Of course, no one has been in as much trouble as Sony lately, after investigating the PSN hacking we close out with Hulu Plus on the Xbox 360 and the upcoming releases of Dumbo and Star Wars on Blu-ray.
