    Note that even my HDTV channels display through my slingbox. The widescreen pictures are displayed with black bars at the top and bottom of the Treo screen, but it displays fine.
    I find that it's a waste to watch the HD channels, assuming there is a standard def channel to watch instead. The video quality is reduced, and I think it's easier to see the normal quality channel if I have the choice. Our screen is only 240*240, watching a 1280*720 HDTV program is pointless

    That is awesome.. Too bad my cable upload speed is only 147 kbps because of how many times it's split... Slingbox says 256kbps minimum

    you can run it at those speeds. I did when Optonline capped my upload speeds...

    Of course, since then I've switched to Verizon's FiOS system. Much faster.

    That is the point I was trying to make. You can watch your HDTV channels where there is no equivalent SD channel. I like to watch INHD concerts and you just can't get them on SD channels. Otherwise I use the SD version.

    What they actually give you is a license code, just like if you were to buy it normally. So you get whatever upgrades anyone else would get. Rule of thumb is they'll at least let you upgrade for free through version 2.0, which should be quite a long time (1.1 is the beta).

    Hmmm you think it'll run well enough? I mean I know it won't run as crisp as yours but you think at my speeds it's worth checking out?

    I was capped at about 130kb by optonline and got it to work. I mean, I was able to actually watch it, hear everything and make out what on the screen. It was about the same quality as MobitTV, so it can work.

    I'd give it a shot. The 256 speed is for "ideal" picture. That's when it starts to get real good and offer what they advertise but it'll work below that too.

    Watch for your service contract though too much slinging could cause your account cancelation by your service provider since it take alot of their bandwidth.

    Well has anyone heard of someone being terminated due to excessive slinging? I haven't. The only reports I've seen are some people using their vzw data cards getting terminated for excessive downloads exceeded 10GB in a month.

    I use my mobile slingplayer a lot and the max I've ever hit was 4GB in a month. Not so much as a warning from VZW. If Sprint is more leanient on video streaming as some people have claimed I'm not going to worry about watching how much I sling at all. Not that I did before.

    The YouTube video shows the lips not syncing with the audio. Is that just a problem with YouTube, or does it look that way "in real life"?
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    Must be a utube/video problem. Audio has always been in sync for me.

    My question is, after we get the Mobile version for free, what happens to future updates? Are they included with the license or do they need to be purchased?
    Do you check the teeth of gift horses?

    I often see lip-sync problems on Cablevision, the source for my Slingbox.

    I paid $250- for mine. Worth every penny.

    Since only one person can use a Slingbox at a time, real users would not rent you theirs. Even if multiple clients could share a Slingbox, they would both have to view the same content. The choice of content is at the source of the Slingbox (e.g, cable, dish, Tivo), not at the SB.

    No, that is a SB client setting. However, most, though not necessarily all, source settings can be controlled via the SB. If the setting can be controlled via the remote, and if the remote proxy on the SB client faithfully reproduces the remote, then it can be controlled by the end user.

    As the originator fo the video, I can assure you: lips sync up

    I just switched from cablevision...I hate them. Get verizon FiOS if you can.

    I just switched too. Its not only faster, but cheaper. Verizon is petitioning huntington township now to be allowed to offer tv services over the fiber. Ofcourse, cablevision is fighting it.

    You can control a TiVo through this, right? How fast/slow is the delay when navigating through the TiVo menus, doing FF/REW, etc.?
