Engadget HD Podcast 317 - 09.25.2012

The fall TV season is upon us and we have responded accordingly with a plus-size episode of the EHD podcast. We've got a good mix of old and new, with news about DirecTV's DVRs, TiVo settling a patent lawsuit and our review of the Vizio Co-Star Google TV box. The NFL Network is finally on Time Warner Cable, but we pause the celebration to remember NFL Films pioneer Steve Sabol. There's Apple TV, Hulu Plus, HBO Go and Showtime Social updates to go around as well, press play to find out what's new.
