    Slingbox

    Anyone have any experience with Slingbox? I'm thinking of getting a slingbox solo.

    I have a slingbox, check with internet provider, some are not allowing or charging extra. I have to restart connection regularly. Can tend to be blurry.

    Re: Slingbox

    I have one and have been fairly happy with it. I don't use it as much as I thought I would, but it's nice to have when you're on the road. I use it at home from time to time as well.

    The quality is acceptable, but you won't mistake it for ESPN 360 or anything, unless you have a pretty fast upstream connection.

    I have to admit to listening to him about once a week. He has some good interviews but once the callers start it becomes stupid real fast.
