"It is not difficult at all..."4.0 starson by maesd
Pros: Setup was easy on my network at home. Installation of software on two PC's and 2 laptops was easy. Great quality within my home and great quality from overseas in Europe.
Cons: I wish more than one connection can be made at any given time. I have no other complaints at all.
Summary: I was very skeptical when I bought this at CompUSA, but it dropped down to $130 and so I figured I would give it a shot. My wife and kids had moved back to Germany ahead of me and they complain about missing TV in the states. I installed this onto my network very easily. I hooked up the DVR and DVD player to the 2 inputs. I then installed the software onto 1 PC as a test. Connected instantly. I downloaded the software that requires no key from Sony's website for free and installed it onto another PC. Same result. I then had a family member who lives 125 miles from me install it on their PC and they too had absolutely no issue. They were able to control my DVR the same way as if they were sitting in my living room. They were also able to use my DVD player to watch a DVD I put into it. My last test was to have my wife install it onto her laptop in Germany. I sent her the software via email and gave her step by step instructions on registering the base station. My wife and kids watch TV from my DVR every single day. In fact, they have taken over the DVR because I can never record anything because it is always near capacity. I am going to Germany in a week so I bought an LF-B20 and will install it in our home in Germany to a German satellite reciever using a PAL -> NTSC converter to stream the German programming back to California. Wish me luck !
