WhereIF – Episode 6 Contents

Joey and I may have been off last week, but we are back with a vengeance this week! We are trying out a new segment called Rapid Fire Hoover. I’ll explain that a little later in this blog post. Next week is the Where Icarus Flies Mailbag! If you have something to say to either Joey or I, send it to feedback@whereicarusflies.com. You could have your message read during the show!

DirectTV HD DVR vs. DirecTV Tivo

I love DirecTV. I have been a loyal customer for years and they have always been good to me. I recently upgraded my service to HD. In the process I had to give up my original standalone Tivo and my DirecTV Tivo. It was hard to let go. The Tivo units are like members of the family! This week I talk about my upgrade experience and how the DirectTV DVR is not as bad as everyone says (at least the HD DVR, anyway).

720p vs. 1080i (and 1080p)

Which is better, 720p, 1080i or 1080p? Are we talking /24, /30 or /60? No, those slashes are not typos. I am reffering to 24 frames per second (fps), 30fps and 60fps. I have done a lot of research this past week and to me it is fairly inconclusive. What I was surprised at is that 1080p is not universally agreed on as better than 720p. Listen in to see what I found out. If you have input, please send it to feedback@whereicarusflies.com or post a comment on the blog.

Podcast File Info – Episode 6

The last two weeks, I have made the enhanced version of the podcast (the .mp4 version) the default in my RSS feed. I am going to change it to the .mp3 version to see if it makes a difference in the number of downloads. You can still get the .mp4 version from my website and from my Atom feed.
