Entertainment 2.0-Episode 45: CEDIA 2009 Part 1

Print No folks, we haven’t split this week’s episode.  We just figure there’s enough info to share that we’ll be spending Episode 46 talking about all of the CEDIA developments as well.  Not only that but as of this episode, we’ve only heard from Microsoft and none of the partners so hopefully, we’ll have even more next week!

For this episode we’re joined by Richard Green, a long time Media Center user, and Josh Shenkle, contributor to The DMZ and regular guest, to go through some of the things we’ve already heard from Microsoft.  This year it’s all about Cablecard and getting high quality, premium HD content into Media Center.  You can read some of the announcements on The DMZ including the announcements that SDV support is coming as well as the fact that the OEM restriction for Cablecard tuners has been lifted.  Great news for those of us like myself who are unwilling to use a hack to get that great HD content.  We also discuss what the upcoming relaxed DRM restrictions mean to MCE users.

Thanks to everyone who left comments and voicemails.  We used a random number generator to pick our winner and murphyr64, who left a comment and a voicemail is our big winner!  He’ll be receiving a DSM-750 extender courtesy of D-Link.  Congratulations to him!

Keep the comments and VOICEMAILS coming!  We enjoyed putting voices with some of our listeners and we want to hear more.  If you have a question or comment you’re always welcome to leave it below but consider calling our toll-free number and we’ll get you on the show!  (1-877-856-4933)

Don’t forget to follow us and our guests on twitter!  It really is the best way to keep up on what is going on here on The DMZ and with Entertainment 2.0!
