"Slingbox AV needs to be seen to be believed."4.5 starson by LineOver
Pros: Ease of use, streaming, physical set up
Cons: Software set up
Summary: Overall, the Slingbox AV is one of the best products I've ever seen or used.
Anytime you have a signal over 256kbps, you will have seamless streaming of your TV and TiVo with TV quality picture and very good sound. If you have less than 256, the picture degrades in favor of seamless streaming until eventually the connection and stream suffers.
Setting up the Slingbox physically is simple, as there are only a few wires, the real fun begins when trying to configure the IP address and let your laptop access the slingbox from outside of your firewall. If you have DSL, you have the added bonus that DSL modems are in reality routers, which will also need to be configured.
After 4 hours on the phone with tech support, my slingbox works great and since there is no monthly fee, I would highly recommend this breakthrough product.
