Submission + - Remotely Connecting Two Machines for Audio

TFGeditor writes: "Thanks to /. readers' advice from a previous Ask Slashdot ahref=http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/09 /28/2153212rel=url2html-31469http://ask.slashdot.o rg/article.pl?sid=06/09/28/2153212> , I now have a PC system optimally configured to produce professional on-air radio programs. Now I have a new problem. My radio co-host and I are in different cities located a few hundred miles apart. In order to give the show a real-time (i.e. "live") sound, we need to somehow connect him and me over the net so that we can produce a show complete with co-host banter, real-time interaction, etc. as if we were both in the same studio. How can we do this? Will Skype or other VOIP applications do this without the result sounding "tinny" (like a phone connection), or are there other apps that will do a better job? Need your advice/help."

Submission + - No HD in US voucher Set-Top Boxes

pcjjman writes: "On Tuesday the NTIA (National Telecommunications & Information Administration) released the requirements and recommendations for ATSC digital set-top boxes that wish to be valid for the $40 vouchers every US household will receive early next year. Guess what? None of the valid boxes will actually display HD signals. S-video's the best video output you'll find, and even that's optional. For more info read my post about it, or look at the actual guidelines themselves, straight from the NTIA."
