  1. Join the Engadget HD podcast live on Ustream at 6:30pm

    It's Monday, and we know that getting the week started can be tough. We're here to help by letting you peek into the recording booth when the Engadget HD podcast goes to tape at 5:30pm. Think of it as a kind of time machine that will help you power through your day by reviewing what happened in...
  2. Ask Engadget HD: HD projector or HDTV? 2010 edition

    We checked the calendar and it seems to be about time we revisited one of our favorite questions -- projector or HDTV? Both have their strengths, and since we posed the question in '08, LCDs and plasmas have only gotten bigger and cheaper, while it seems there's 1080p projector currently...
  3. Ask Engadget HD: Home theater on a $2,500 budget?

    Keeping with our recent theme of more frugal home theater efforts, this week our question is similar to the pie in the sky dreams of a few weeks ago, but with a very down to earth monetary restriction. Our friend Thomas has space for a home theater setup, but not a lot of cash to use to fill...
  4. Ask Engadget HD: Best HTIB for under $500?

    Recently we've gone decidedly high end with our queries, but now we've got a question that returns to the opposite end of the home theater spectrum. Our friend Jason wants to upgrade to surround sound without spending too much cash, so think about passable HTIB systems while you read his...
  5. Ask Engadget HD: What do you think Google TV's 'Dragonpoint' will be?

    No home theater how-to this time, instead we'll pose a different question. Thanks to mainstream media "leaks" there's little doubt Google will have something TV related to show off at its I/O 2010 conference tomorrow, but what are you expecting / hoping to see? Let us know what an Intel Atom...
  6. Ask Engadget HD: How do I keep a closet full of home theater equipment from overheating?

    Last week we asked how to achieve your wildest home theater desires and this week we have a followup in that same theme. Moving all those home theater components out of the way helps achieve the clean look so many desire, but Edward wants to know how do you do it? "I've seen different...
  7. Ask Engadget HD: How do I take my home theater to the next level?

    Sure, getting a nice HDTV and slapping together a custom audio system can make a living room into a decent entertainment setup -- but what's the best way to go all-in on a dedicated theater room? That's the question posed by Ken: "I just moved into a new house, and finally have a room with...
  8. Ask Engadget HD: Best remote with WiFi & EPG?

    We've always preferred our program guides up on the screen where our eyes already were, but having a list to skim over without squeezing the action into a corner or hiding it behind text is too appealing for some to give up. So what do you do if you're like Jorge stuck using a remote rendered...
