-Martin quote

This is a great product! I normally don't take the time to review - but just have to say this is definitely one of the best products I've recently bought. Setup was seamless, it provides many many cable box codes to control your cable box (I have the Scientific Atlanta 3250HD) which even BeyondTV does not have, video quality is good (not perfect, but very watchable) I have been traveling abroad for work for the past two months, and this would've been great to have when all I could get on TV was CNN World!

Slingbox Solo

by Cjanzivno on 10/20/2008

I would like to say that this product works great, but I would like to help any would be buyers about some crucial information before purchase. First, anyone that owns a dish network box Vip 322, the slingbox IS compatible, you just need to use the vip 311 code and hook into the TV 1 input located on the back of your receiver. Second, for remote viewing, your home location (where you slingbox is setup) needs to have great upload speeds from your ISP (internet service provider). when your slingbox is connected to your home network (LAN) the picture will look great only because you are downloading your picture, remote viewing on the other hand is different. in order for your remote viewing access to be worth while you WILL need good upload speed otherwise the picture will be lousy. on the remote access end, your download speed is all that matters. note, my upload speed originally at my home location was 490, and the picture was really bad on remote viewing but excellent when i was on the home network. I upgraded my home location to 1000kbps upload speed and now the remote viewing is excellent. In sum, great investment, but beware of your home location upload speed, otherwise you will be disappointed. before purchase do a speed test and look to your upload speed at your home location to make sure you will have a satisfactory picture. Enjoy. Read More
