    The Cerwin Vega CVHD 5.1 looks like a nice speaker system but for that price it should have amplifiers and a digital decoder built-in, ready to plug into your upconverting DVD, Blue Ray or HD-DVD player and be ready to go. I think all the speaker companies have dropped the ball since none of them are making what people really need when they need it. Everyone buying a new HDTV could potentially use a 5.1 speaker system also.Boston Acoustics makes a nice 2.1 system with built-in digital decoder and compact sub-woofer called the BA735 that has great sound and is plug-n-play on DVD players but they don’t even make a 5.1 system! Klipsch used to make an amplified 5.1 system called the Promedia 5.1 but it’s out of production. What are they thinking? They also make a nice 2.1 system called the Promedia 2.1 that has a huge sub-woofer and awesome sound but it’s being phased out. They are $160 at Best Buy or $80 on the Klipsch website close-out section. Both the Klipsch systems can be found on ebay for around $40 but shipping is high and they don’t have digital decoders, just analog stereo inputs. The Promedia 2.1 makes a fantastic computer speaker for playing videos though.

    Hi Ben,I cannot seem to be able to download this show using the latest version of iTunes. iTunes shows that is is downloading, ends downloading but afterwards the show appears as needing to be downloaded in my Podcast list. The same thing is happening for the Textra podcast but with no other video podcasts that I watch like ‘Ted.’ Just thought that you would like to know.Take care,George

    The 4G Nano is not “white”, it is silver as in metal.

    The iPod Classic is also not “white”, it is metal as in silver color.

    :)
