Podcast: The Media Center Show #224 – Ben Drawbaugh

As promised last week here is the interview I recorded with Engadget HD’s Ben Drawbaugh talking about his CEDIA experiences and looking back at how well he did with his predictions, some came off and some didn’t! The main news seems to be around CableCARD and Ben explains what this means to Media Center enthusiasts. I have a round up of the weeks news, email and my first impressions of the new Zune HD

The Media Center Show #222 Small Form Factor PCs

Mike and I discus the pros and cons of the PCs and how they can fit in with our home networks. I also have email, a news roundup and the details of Microsoft’s Windows Media Center CEDIA announcements.
