The Media Center Show #249 – By Remote

Returning to the show this week is Windows Media Center MVP Niall Ginsbour talking about his remote scheduling application called “By Remote”. The application enables you to schedule recordings and browse the EPG remotely from phone or browser via a Silverlight client, its great to see Niall back developing Media Center solutions and By Remote looks very cool


Seen in HD 27 – Compression, BBC’s Life, (500) Days of Summer review

A fun, different and quirky take on romantic movies (the film opens with the statement “This is not a love story”). Great soundtrack, solid visuals and audio (though the audio is mostly front-loaded) makes for a recommended rental for sure.


Engadget HD Podcast 184 – 03.23.2010

After our Lost discussion last week, we’re right back at it with Avatar Blu-ray & DVD release news to open this week’s show. That’s just the start for 3D news, with new content and providers popping up almost daily, but how much will it all cost? After that we dig into the latest updated on Netflix streaming for the PC and why we’re not worried about ICT. After that there’s cable news with compression, CableCARD and TiVo before some healthy unfounded speculation about what Google can do to the set-top box market. Finally we figure out if people really do love NBC’s Olympics tape-delay and who is (or is not) watching Life on discovery, and why.
