Question 1: I connect this to my only cable outlet in my house. Can Person A watch something on Channel 10 at home and Person B watch channel 20 on their laptop somewhere else in the world?Question 2: If Question 1 is possible, is there a weakness in the picture quality if both Person A and Person B are watching the same channel?

my friend has a slingbox… for question 1, no it’s not possible. both people have to be watching the same channel. for question 2, i heard the quality gets weaker, but i have no idea how the new Slingbox PRO is. but regardless of everything, it’s still a good product i think. i’m thinking of buying it soon.

If there is a cablebox then no. But if there is an outside tv cable with no box it works.

Yes. if it is direct cable is ok you use a Splitter and put one end in the sling box. Q2: Picture depends on two things internet uploading speed at home will determine a lot on the picture and the downloading speed in the destination must be at least 254kbps (better 510kb up) and the picture is very good and the sound is great with no delays. I HAVE TWO SLINGBOXES

question 1……if the person at the real location of the box is watching/switching channels, it will cause the remote viewer to get frustrated, because it will change the remote channels as well. And vice versa. i just noticed you commented 10 months ago…wow you prob forgot all about this original comment.

I saw this at CES in Vegas Jan 2007. Their booth was one of the more popular booths.

the slingbox along with the other devices out there….arnt hd quality at all. very misleading. plus you need a 50 dollar wire for that “hd” cable. its not even an hdmi cable. it is cool however to know you can watch tv anywhere, but they dont need to mislead about the video quality.

theres no reason why it isn’t HD over a home wifi connection. blu-ray video is at 40mbps, which is easily achievable over almost any home wifi network.

The max resolution of any Sling box over a home network or any network is 640×480 and the normal resolution is 320×240. This is not even close to HD quality, and none of the Slingboxs broadcast HD quality picture because of bandwidth issues. The slingbox is still a great way to watch the tube on your PC when you are away

I am wondering, Can the Slingbox be used on non standard ports so more than one can be behind the same nated ip?

I got one of these this month and this shit rulez.  definently get the verizon broadband usb laptop connect card for the high speed internet or you wont be able to watch this on the road without high speed internet away from home. it does buffer but as you maintain one scheduled program its connection strengthens for better viewing. 9 out of 10.

ok now I understand using this to watch tv on the road but why in the world would I want to watch tv on my 17in computer monitor vs my 40 inch big screen tv.

because if you are on the road away from your home, you can still access your TV or Tivo from anywhere in the world.  Its great to use while at the airport, on a train, by the pool, etc… It isn’t meant to make your PC screen into your main television – just give you access to TV content away from the home.
