Weekly Podcast Roundup, July 22nd 2010

Enjoy the home theater podcasts from this week!

The guys interview MythTV developer Robert McNamara. Blu-Ray support implemented in MythTV. MythNetVision. Project reorganization of MythTV. The death of flash, Silverlight and hopes of HTML5 & Webm

This weeks show gets kicked off with some Blu-ray news as the details of two anticipated titles are reveled and then discussed as well as an very influential classic. Of course 3D comes up as we cover the update for PowerDVD, ESPN’s first 3D broadcast that was produced in house and the worst channel ever. In PS3 news we talk its 3D limitations and its new found ability to stream Hulu Plus content. That wasn’t the only Sony news though as we covered in depth how much (some of us) like the new Sony HD camcorder. Oh, and then do we ever get our soap box and let the world know how we feel about AllVid and those who appose it. We round the show out covering a few content related topics including Netflix coming to Canada, streaming devices and the first licensing deal for XStreamHD.

More podcasts available after the break….

It’s the week of mediocrity here on The Movie Podcast.  James and I take a look at three films and while none of them were awful, either bad acting or bad writing held them back from being great.  I really wanted to enjoy this week’s selection but it was more meh than anything else.  It’s unfortunate too because any one of these films could have been great very easily.

For the second week in a row Adam is off doing…well…maybe I don’t want to know what Adam is doing! He is however on a much a deserved vacation. We still have a great show this week for you though. Our regular listeners know that when it comes to digital media and how its produced and consumed in Europe, Adam and I aren’t what you would call “experts.” So this week we were able to convince a 100% certified Brit to stay up way past his bed time and come on our show.
