I recently purchased the Slingbox Pro HD. The setup was quite easy, I am using a Netgear router and installation went smoothly. The picture quality on my Blackberry is excellent, as for PC/Laptop the quality is satisfactory but that could be down to my internet speed, I'm with AOL so say no more. I've connected it to my security camera, so I can view my property whenever I choose, either on my mobile phone or a PC. The only downside with the Slingbox is their list of compatible remote controls (hence the 4 star rating). I have a GBsat DUET satellite receiver which can be viewed but not controlled over the internet. You can ask Slingmedia support to find the code for your device but some people have been waiting 2 years for a reply. The guys at Slingcommunity are really helpful, they helped me find a file for my DVD recorder and if possible they can make a virtual remote for you. They can also tell you how to make your own remote control for devices not on the Slingbox database but it's not for the faint hearted. I would definitely recommend this little beauty.

Also if you have relatives abroad, get them to download the Slingplayer onto their PC and whatever you are watching at home, whether it be a movie or a home movie of the kids, they can watch along with you.

Hey all,
bought this the other day because despite being a UK citizen I live in Belgium at the moment and TV. . . well to put it bluntly sucks!
so I got myself one of these and my friend has set it up at his house where he has SKY+
tried it out last night, in all honesty it was/is the simplest thing to setup ever and works a treat.
the only downside I suppose (this is because of the UK infrastructure) is that my friends upload speed is around 300K so that is all I am getting here, however the quality is like twice as good as youtube and perfectly tolerable considering the distance away I am.
from my friends side, he gets around 3MB because it is on his local network and says it great.

All in All, seems very good so far, stable and well made. but just from reading other internet reviews you get the picture that this product does do what it states indeed.

Great product!
