Entertainment 2.0 #137 : CableCARD Changes and Windows 8

PrintFor episode 137 of the Entertainment 2.0 podcast Josh Pollard was once again joined by Richard Gunther. For the first time in months they didn’t have any listener feedback to respond to, there was still plenty to talk about.  Microsoft announced a new media remote for the Xbox 360. Next up the guys looked at the screenshots of Windows Media Center running in Windows 8 that were posted at theGreenButton.tv. In the Media Center Quick Tip of the Week Josh discussed how to manually update your electronic program guide data. After that he talked about the review he just completed of the Water home theater PC by Low Carbon PC. Josh couldn’t hold back his excitement about Windows Phone 7, so he had to bring up that Mango has officially been released to manufacturing. Richard was disappointed by the next story as SiliconDust announced another delay with the HDHomeRun Prime. The guys wrapped up the show by talking about all of the rules that are changing in the next couple of weeks with regard to CableCARD in the United States.
