Entertainment 2.0 #126 : Tom Kuhlman and AMD Zacate

PrintAs usual, episode 126 of the Entertainment 2.0 Podcast was kicked off by more great listener feedback. That included some great ideas from one listener to another in response to questions from last week. After the emails Josh and Craig talked to the newest DMZ writer, Tom Kuhlman, about his new AMD Fusion HTPC that he built. They also discussed using the beta version of Silverlight 5 to potentially improve the performance of Netflix HD on low-powered boxes, such as Tom’s new Zacate HTPC. Josh also kicked off a new topic, the Media Center Quick Tip of the week. This week he looked at some nice shortcuts with the Media Center remote. Of course one of the biggest news stories of the week was that the Silicondust HDHomeRun Prime received CableLabs certification. They discussed the details of that story and the implications for Ceton. There were also some updates to popular Media Center plugins to be discussed. SecondRun TV has released version 2.5 of their cord-cutting application and My Channel Logos has reached version 2. The trio also discussed the launching of Hulu Plus on the Xbox 360. Next time join the guys for all the fun in the live chat room, on Tuesday nights at 8pm ET.
