Engadget HD Podcast 251 - 06.01.2011

Trent Wolbe

With a short week after the holiday we've got a short and one-day delayed podcast, but no worries -- there's lots of news packed in. The NBA Finals just started and it's all available in 3D, while Comcast is testing new IPTV technology at MIT. We also take note of the cable industry's latest flirtation with DLNA before digging into some Media Center PC apps with Remote Potato and AirPlay for WMC. The six tuner version of SiliconDust's HDHomeRunPrime is ready to be preordered so we'll take a peek at that and also revisit the Sony 3D projection scandal(!) from last week. To close things out we have a few notable Blu-ray announcements including The Big Lebowski and Planet Earth: Special Edition, problems with our Netflix queue and a quick peek at SlingPlayer for Google TV.
