    Any reason in buying a streaming Blu-ray player if I already have a Roku?

    I'm in the market for a new Blu-ray player. Most of the new ones made by Panasonic that come with 3D also have built-in wifi and smart technology and streaming apps. Does it make any sense to buy one of these or should I look at an older one since I already have a Roku 2 XS?

    Roku 3 to get YouTube Channel

    Apparently it was a performance issue with Roku 2 and why there isn't an official YouTube channel. Supposedly the new chip in version 3 should be able to get it, but if that's the case, why wasn't a YouTube app packaged with the new one? A9 Chip Inside The Roku 3 May Finally Allow For An...

    What is TVGOS?

    Bought a Panasonic HDTV about 2 weeks ago, and discovered that it has "TVGOS" capability. I know it's an on screen guide, but how exactly does it function? Who runs the service and how is it paid for? Just seems weird that it's free.

    Panasonic VIERA TC-P55ST50 55-Inch 1080p HDTV Thoughts?

    Looking at HDTVs again this year. I'd like to make a move in the next week or so, and on something around 55" with 1080p and internet apps. I've narrowed my selection down to the Panasonic VIERA TC-P55ST50. I think at least. Anyone care to comment? It's about $1,000 which is my budget.

    Anyone know if the older Dr. Who reruns are still shown on BBC or any other channel? Can't seem to find them on TV anymore? Used to be my favorite show as a kid, and now BBC runs the newer show but it's not as good.

    HD Radio and MDTV - A good combination with small antennas?

    Very cool to see TV makers teaming up HD radio and Mobile TV into one TV set and even though there aren't any official products out with both types of tuners, it looks like there will be. What I'm getting at is.....................What are the odds that a little antenna is going to pick up BOTH...

    Muppets aka Sesame Street

    I don't think I truly ever appreciated The Muppets until I got older. Anyone else a fan? Loved the show on PBS but the movies were even better.

    What do you think of your local PBS station?

    My local PBS in New Mexico is pretty good, I usually try to catch Nightly Business Report and Woldfocus if I have time. Overall I'm pretty happy with their quality of programs which often focuses more on education, like the Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish series they've been showing this...

    Jet Li's "Unleashed"

    Hope it's ok if I post in this section for a DVD review/discussion. I'm a big martial arts film guy and have been for over 30 years. I rented Jet Li's "Unleashed" this weekend and was unimpressed. High on action, low on storyline, and I was expecting so much more with Morgan Freeman in the cast.

    Can a station broadcast mobile DTV and not OTA ATSC?

    My local news ran a story last night about Mobile DTV offering a variety of programming in the future. I thought to myself, how is ATSC M/H going to be any different than what's on TV now and then a thought came to me, will there be mobile DTV broadcasters that aren't broadcasting OTA ATSC...
