    • A. You need to check if your phone is capable and if your phone plan allow you..then all you need is to buy the sling-mobil software and install it on your phone and that will be it..of course you need to setup slingbox to be watched on the internet first..see instructions at www.slingbox.com/setup

    • A. Depends on the cell phone. You need to download an app for it then connect it to the Slingbox at home. Installation is pretty easy. Broadband internet at home is required.

    • A. I have an android 2.2 phone and slingmedia has an app in the android marketplace. It costs $30 but it works great even on a 3G network. You have to have a minimum of a slingbox solo.

    I ask because if I decide to buy this I want to put the box at my parents house in NY and watch football and hockey games on my TV in North Carolina.

    • A. Yes that is its main purpose. But be aware that you will be controlling whatever TV it is hooked to. You cannot watch one thing while your parents watch another.

    • A. May not be any problem, but read on... In general, put Slingbox anywhere and watch it anywhere else. Watching on TV--that depends. Slingbox Solo sends video to your PC. If you then have a way to get video from your PC onto your TV, you're cool. I think Slingbox also sells some solution to get video directly onto a TV, but I'm not sure. Also, you may or may not need some assistance if you set the box up one place and then move it to some other place and have to change the set up. It is not "hard" but as I recall it wasn't totally obvious either. I think it said something like "change Slingbox" or the like after logging in to slingbox.com

    • A. Yes! The easiest way to do this would be to connect the box at your parents, then just connect either your iPhone or iPad to your tv using the optional composite cables made for the iPhone/iPad. These composite cables plug directly into the iPhone or iPad just like the charger, then the cables plug directly into your tv for audio and video. I would suggest that you set your iPhone or iPad to WiFi, to reserve your battery. Hope this helps.

    • A. Sure there is; if you have a laptop all you will need is a internet on your parents house and a internet access wherever yo go and you can use your laptop to watch the game....also you can check if your cell is capable of streaaming video then you will be able to watch your favorite shows from it, although for this you need to pay for the software sling-mobile one time download..

    The Slingbox Solo worked at first. About a week after installation it wouldn't turn on. I returned it to my local Walmart and received a no hassle, friendly refund. (I bought it online from walmart.com) I then purchased the Slingbox Pro and it has worked like a champ. It also uploads faster to the internet and produces a better picture on my office computer. For the price difference I would go with the Slingbox Pro. Also, the Pro handles high def, the solo does not.

    The Slingbox Solo is really a well thought out and intuitive product. We've found it very helpful if you travel and frequent hotels where you can connect to wi-fi and view television from your cable/satellite provider. Absolutely love the Slingbox.

    My husband is deploying to Afghanistan and wanted this box in order to be able to watch "normal" television on his laptop while he is over there. The laptop he was planning on taking would not sync with this Slingbox. I'm sure it's probably a computer problem and not the Slingbox itself. We were able to get it to sync with our home computer and a work laptop. If you have a lot of security settings set up on your computer(like we do our laptop) you may have difficulty syncing it with the Slingbox until you figure out what setting needs to be changed.

    I bought this just for football season. I have it hard wired to my router and use it on a DishNetwork DVR. It works perfectly over 3G on my iPhone with AT&T. I couldn't be more satisfied. Great product!!

    I purchased 14 Slingboxes for a team doing international travel and it was the best thing I could have done. After a 3 minute set up.... it was amazing. Even my wife who is not a "techy" said this is GREAT! The only thing I would warn is that unless you put it in a room where your cable box is not viewed often, then whoever is home will have to watch the same thing you are watching on the road...but other than that... 10 out of 10. I traveled to India and had no issues at all and was able to watch all my shows and sports while away from home for 2 months!

    I wanted a portable TV and decided the get all kinds of goofy wireless stuff for the house... why not use my laptop? So I found this item and looked at youtube videos for setup and looked ez enough. The next thing was the price. That is where good ole Walmart came in. Now I am able to watch TV in bed, in the garage at my mother in-laws and anywhere else there is a decent accessible wifi connection. There is one catch though... I recommend pausing in the extended window for the buffer to fill in the event where you are located the network is slow. Aside from that.... its good to go. You can even view your recorded shows. Have fun!!! So both Walmart and Slingbox get 5 starts in my book.

    I purchased this for my husband as an XMas present and it was a huge hit!! We have it hooked up to our DirecTV DVR. He uses it all the time - he has some lengthy breaks during his work day so he can just pop on and watch a little tv (especially during college football season) or go on and set up recordings for later. He is a teacher and he has also recorded some health related shows to play for his classes directly from our TiVo. I know we will get alot of use out of it when we go on vacation too! Would absolutely recommend!

    I love the slingbox. I like to "listen" to TV while I work. The bosses frowned on my little tv. This is my answer. Plug in my headphones, listen to my TV. Walmart has the best price.

    I'm on the road a LOT for work and frequently in Europe where the only English channel they ever seem to have is CNN International. Got this to connect to a spare HD DVR box we have in the guest bedroom (the Slingbox will take control of the box while in use so it's best not to use your main box if you have family) and tested it in 4 countries this week. Worked great! If I have a minimal high speed internet connection even (think cheap hotel in Budapest) the SD channels worked fine...for the HD channels you need a little higher speed. We have good upload speeds at home with FIOS..I'm sure that helps too. Definitely recommend it for all fellow road warriors who want their normal channel lineup and shows while travelling.
