Post Roundup 26

It’s a day late but here it is anyway this weeks post round up. There was a lot of talk about Extenders last week and I think its a device type under threat from lack of support by manufactures, Microsoft and maybe customers. This week on [tmcs] I talked to Windows 7, Powerline and HD Homerun and on The Custom Integrator Show we finished talking networking. Also launched this weeks was the TDL Home Server blog and we are looking for contributors for the blog
