Today's show

We are big proponents of movie downloads and we always have our eyes peeled for a good solution. To date, all the solutions out there have something that the HT Guys don't like. The biggest issue we have is video quality but other issues include the payment system or requiring a computer to download and store the movie. Enter Vudu. It is a $400 set top box not much bigger than a Mac Mini that promises to deliver movies on demand that passes the HT Guys video quality requirements. The Video is DVD quality with HDTV promised for the future. You don't need a computer like Amazon's Unbox or Netflix streaming videos. And unlike the Xbox 360 Marketplace you know exactly what the movie is going to cost. more...

I just do not see the attraction with this piece. I would rather the Tivo with a little patience (buffer issue) then deal with a device you can not control with a IR based remote. As well as the fact that the Tivo has dual cable cards which eliminates the cable box....what a concept.
