  • Slingbox - Internet TV etc..

    So if any of you have a slingbox solo i have some question (i don't own one yet.)


    so here's my theory:
    I buy a slingbox Solo, fly to germany with it, connect it to my grandmas tv receiver set and internet

    and then i can go back to the US and watch german tv live via web right?


    i know i probably have to get a second set-top box, and how does it work with different channels? does the slingbox have an IR emitter?

    Life's too short to live it fast.

        That is an interesting idea. What kind of bandwidth would that require?

          they say a minimum of 256kb upload, but i guess 1mbit upload is enough for SD streaming at leat..

            I don't know if this will be an issue, but the US uses the NTSC standard and Europe uses PAL. Something to check out before proceeding.

              oh, i haven't thought if that, thanks!

              i checked the power, and the slingbox does universal 110-240V 50/60 Hz

              so i'll look for the tv standards..

                ok, the slingbox will work perfectly for what you are trying to do. It does not matter about ntsc / pal b/c the slingbox encodes the stream and sends it to an app on your phone / computer. If you want to watch said stream on your TV, then you will be hooking up your computer to the set... I have a classic and will be getting a solo for HD this spring. I have a missionary in equador and a soldier in Afganistan who regularly tap into my tuner to watch a game or just primetime tv.... and I watch on my phone all the time.... best device ever.


                and yes, it has an ir emitter to control the input, but if you skip the solo and get the tuner, you can just use the cable hookup and not force your relative to watch what you want when you take control of the box.
