Performance

The Slingbox PRO-HD is another fine device from Sling Media. It's full-featured and comes with the cables needed to get started (except SP/DIF). The image quality is very good over my home network but you'll need at least a 1.5Mbps upload connection if you want to stream HD content remotely over the Internet. The only quirk I've encountered is that I cannot invoke my list of recorded programs with the virtual remote; I was able to do it using my SOLO. Still the PRO-HD is an excellent product, despite the high price, and another fine addition from Sling Media

If you are considering a TV tuner for your PC, this is a great alternative. You will spend more up front, but the benefits are great. Not only can you watch TV on your PC in your home, but you can watch TV anywhere as long as you have a PC and an internet connection (or on your blackberry if you subscribe - I did and it's pretty cool). If you are electronically challenged you might find the setup difficult. Anyone who has multiple audio/video components in their home will find the setup rather easy. The hardest part for me was running an ethernet cable from our router in an office to our TV in the family room. I routed it through the walls and into the basement so it took a little work to do it, but well worth it. Once the cables are hooked up, it is an easy on-line setup to configure the device. As most have said, the hd streaming at home is nearly flawless and shows a great picture on hd widescreen monitor. HD streaming outside the home can be sketchy at times, but you simply switch your video input over to the analog or digital coaxial feed and I have had no problems. That's the beaty of the HD Pro, you have two output signals and can switch between the two. This also comes in handy when someone else is actually watching your HD TV the slingbox is connected to, rather then watching the programs they have on, you can switch over to the coaxial video feed and watch what ever you want without effecting your HD TV viewing. I have had no issues and would recommend this to anyone. Great product!
