The Media Center Show No.156 – HP on the MediaSmart TV

Listen Here
A couple of weeks ago HP updated their MediaSmart TV to add Media Center Extender functionality making it the first TV with a built in Extender, so this week I am talking to Brian Burch, Director of HP Connected Entertainment about the MediaSmart TV and the soon to be available MediaSmart Receiver. I saw the TV in person at CES and it looks a great and having an Extender built in means less cables and boxes. I also have your email and news items.
