Engadget HD Podcast 258 - 07.26.2011

Trent Wolbe

We've got an interesting week to recap, with the launch of the Roku 2, a quarterly update from Netflix and more 3D misinformation flooding the internet. In the you-knew-it-was-coming corner, there's more disappointing TiVo news, complaints about DirecTV's (lack of) HD channels, empty OLED promises and another janky iPhone remote add-on. We'll wrap things up by going over what we watched last week and are looking forward to this week, but of course nothing was bigger than finally hearing about the end of the NFL lockout -- we're ready for some football. Note: There's no .ogg version this week, you can blame OS X Lion for that temporary inconvenience.
