I've read it is fine to stream video on Power Vision using Sprint. I want to be sure that is accurate so I don't have to restrict my Slinging when my 700wx arrived like I did on VZW. I'll try to answer you questions the best I can.

    1. If it is connected directly to the coax of your TV then it will only display the channel the TV is on, and you won't be able to change the channel. If you connect the analog input to the Slingbox you'll be able to change those though. Sling does sell a wireless router that may be able to hook up to your digital cable box, I'm not real sure how it works though.

    2. If you change the analog channel, no. If you have it hooked up to the cable box, yes. You'd have to get a second cable box if you didn't want it to.

    Thanks for the reply,

    As far as your question about Sprint, I have to be very careful here. I DO NOT speak for Sprint nor can I advice you about aspects of the plans in an official capacity. That type of thing can get me fired. I do not work in customer care or in sales.

    What I can tell you is that I have read external publications that agree with what you have stated about limiting bandwidith. Also keep in mind that just because you might be able to do it today does not mean that the rules can change in the future.

    That being said, I bought (yes bought, they don't give us devices for free) a Treo 700wx because I am also planning on using it to view SlingBox input.

    Of course, my plan is slightly better than all of yours

    1. yes
    2. no
    3. you can use a variety of devices - VCR's, DVD, Cable, Cable Boxes, TiVo, DVR's, etc. You can only have a couple hooked up at a time but it can control many things.

    I use Vicott's UI Tweaker

    Specifically, look under TdyScheme Changer and use WM5 settings. That's where to change to the "black bars". You can also customize every color on they system and save the settings (very handy).

    Best part: no system hit in resources and it's free.

    The theme (which is just a green-ish background after I tweaked it) is just the MS Green Theme from their website.
