Engadget HD Podcast 392 - 4.2.14

Its FiOS Media Server has arrived under the name Quantum TV DVR and it's ready to make you master of your multi-room domain. With this week's announcements, some casual competition arises between your hosts regarding the details on what Amazon will (did) release -- congratulations Richard -- and the company has locked in season two of Alpha House, along with six other new shows to satisfy your TV jones. The crew also flashes back to the OG Slingbox and provides you with a pile of Must See HDTV for the week. So grab a seat and head on down to the streaming links below to join us for this week's edition of the Engadget HD Podcast.
