Engadget HD Podcast 300 – 05.22.2012

Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012This week the Engadget HD podcast crew rolls the odometer over 300 episodes, but it’s no big deal. Especially not when we’ve got new hardware and software from the likes of TiVo and Comcast to discuss during Cable Show 2012. Comcast is actually all over the news this week, with bandwidth policy changes and new features. Motorola won’t be left behind either, showing off a new concept DreamGallery UI, while our old friend Moxi is even in the house with an update. Also up for discussion is whether or not 96k TrueHD audio sampling is worth getting excited over, Super Hi-Vision broadcasts and a new web streaming UI from Netflix.
