Engadget HD Podcast 320 - 10.16.2012

While we've still got plenty of iPad second screen and streaming video tech to talk about this week, we're leading off with some old classics: FCC rulings, DVRs and Windows Media Center. While the FCC may be helping cable companies kill ClearQAM, is the sacrifice actually worth it? We've also got a look at the final Ceton Echo, and even TiVo is finally opening up its SDK. We reviewed the new Slingboxes this week, and will go over what they got right -- and what they didn't -- before we dig into what's new to watch this week.
