The Media Center Show #245 – Networked Tuners

This week Garry Whittiker and Jason Coombes join me to discuss networked tuners using DVBLink, Jason has all his tuners pooled in a Windows Home Server and then is using DVBLink to distribute the tuners around the network. Its an interesting solution and takes us closer to having a centralised TV tuner system. Jason is also streaming TV via DLNA to devices like PS3 and over the internet.

Another week, another breaking news item just in time for us to discuss on the podcast and weren’t we lucky to have Home Media Magazine’s Chris Tribbey filling in the third seat this week to try and make sense of Wal-mart’s purchase of VUDU. Other industry shakeups include the Redbox & Warner deal, Sezmi’s retail launch and possible release dates for Avatar on Blu-ray disc. After that we dig into whether HDMI 1.3 will support 3D, the future for Media Center Extenders, some TiVo news and finally what’s wrong with the Olympics and why NBC doesn’t care what you or we think.

If you happened to watch the Super Bowl and paid attention to the commercials, there were some really good ones. Bud light had a few, Doritos had a couple, but there also might have been a few that didn’t make much sense to you. One of those could have been the Vizio add for their newly refreshed Vizio Internet Apps offering.
