Throwback podcast time! We've got lots of DVR news after our FiOS review, Microsoft Mediaroom / Media Center updates and a new box from TiVo. Of course, we also visited CEDIA last week so there's plenty to talk about there too, including 4K, ultrawidescreen and more. There's also plenty to talk about when it comes to smart TVs and exactly why they're struggling in the market so far, and what a new deal between ESPN and the NFL could mean for 3D. Last but not least, it's Star Wars Blu-ray week, so we've got to include them among our options of what to watch on TV.
