I had the slingbox up and running in minutes.. It was very simple to use and worked with my Smart Phone... HOWEVER.... what they DON'T tell you is.. plunk down another 30 bucks for the mobile player.. Pretty cheesey!! other than that.. nice product... works well on the PC end

It's very easy to configure and use! Currently only using a VCR and the internal tuner and only using in a LAN setting. The video is very smooth when the signal is clear (currently only using 'over the air' tv). It recognizes many various devices and setup is a snap. There are two infrared sensors connected in one wire which is very handy. Simply place this in front of the device(s) you want to control. Works great on a wireless laptop and wired desktop (can only use one at a time). 'Slinging' audio and video is very easy to do! Really there are an unlimited number of options for the Slingbox. Thanks buy.com and Slingmedia!

Slingbox and Buy.com are the best.

by Daniel Williams mail@danwills.net on 6/14/2007

I was impressed by the speedy delivery, the packaging, and the efficient handling of my merchandise from Buy.com. The website and order processing are the best. I purchased Slingbox Pro and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the picture, the robustness, and ease of use. Using the s-video was a factor in delivering superior quality. I used my Slingbox Pro with Dish Network receiver. It was a nice surprise to see an image of my Dish Network's remote control with all functions on my PC. I can remotely control any function on my receiver. I enjoy my Satellite TV and Sirius Radio remotely on my PC or on the run using Slingbox Mobile client (additional program) installed on an htc 8525 (AKA Cingular/ATT 8525). I enjoy my satellite TV and Sirius Radio even on a commuter train whenever access to the internet is available, in my case, most of the way from home to work. On the negative side, I found that I can control only one input with my Slingbox Pro even though the description says it has provision for up to 4 inputs, so what's the point in having 4 inputs? All in all, I am very pleased with Slingbox Pro and Buy.com. I welcome any question or comment. Read More

Slingbox Pro

by Matt on 6/14/2007

Works as designed, easy to setup. I'm streaming mine wirelessly with a Linksys WRT54GS client bridge to the rest of my network to my Cingular 8525 phone. Works fine. Now I can watch TV anywhere on the planet. Read More
