Entertainment 2.0 #311: DisKinect

Entertainment 2.0 #311: DisKinectJosh and Richard are back from Las Vegas, and looking forward to what 2015 has in store. Cable Labs made a change that impacts users attempting to use CableCARD in non-Windows Media Center environments, and Ceton and SiliconDust are prepared for it. Microsoft apparently doesn’t think they’ve released enough low-end Windows Phones, so they’ve announced two more. Anyone using the original Kinect for Windows may need to look at upgrading. Microsoft has a big Windows 10 event coming up. The guys briefly discuss what may be planned. Mainstream support for Windows 7 has ended, but the sky is not falling. The Xbox One has a new preview update. It’s great news for owners of the TV tuner, and Microsoft is enabling more processing power of Xbox One games. If you’re not listening live, you’re missing a lot of fun. Join us next week for the live recording of episode 312 on Wednesday, January 21st at 8:00pm ET!
