New TV

Got a new 3D HDTV this Christmas :) Panasonic TX-P50VT30B

Best TV we've ever had and highly recommend to anyone. Don't pay over the odds as you can now buy it on-line for 40% less than list price. One small tip: If you skip the internet setup when you first power on, the Viera Connect service won't work. If like me, you did this, then reset it to factory defaults and set up the wireless during the first power on.

IIS Smooth Streaming

Only just realised that Windows 7 and IIS let you deliver smooth streaming video content directly from your home PC. I've only implemented it for Microsoft SilverLight so far (try videos below), but will be using ffmpeg to create content that will work with Flash and iPhones/iPads pretty soon. Amazing what you can now do with a home PC
