    OK...I'm interested in this. What is battery life on a 700wx like while running the SlingPlayer?

    When I had a Treo 650, I tried MobiTV and found that it would absolutely KILL the battery quickly. If I watched 20 minutes of MobiTV while waiting for an early flight, I would not have enough battery to get through a regular work day.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Just wanted to post that Best Buy will have all Slingbox's on-sale next week.

    By any chance do you know the prices Best Buy will have them at?
    Also, which SlingBox are most of you using? I see there are three and I'm trying to figure out the best to use for my DVR.

    I'm going to go with the AV. Great price point, and I don't need the features of the Pro. The Tuner is only meant to work with the tv by itself.

    I would think you need the Slingbox Pro in order to take advantage of more than one input....

    I love my slingbox. I have had the classic since last thanksgiving. I live here in the UK and have the slingbox hooked up to a Tivo in Philly.

    I upgraded the upstream speed at home to 786 from 384. That is very worth it. So Now, I can watch on my computer here (hooked up to the tv too)

    I also can watch via the mobile player on my vario ii (either though wifi or HSPDA).

    For those with questions, www.slingcommunity.com is a great resource.

    Do you mean do you need a Slingbox to use Slingbox mobile?

    If so the answer is yes.

    It is listed for $134.99 on the web site:

    Show them the website and they will give you the sale price.

    I ordered my Slingbox online at BestBuy.com for the $134 price and did an in-store pickup. No price hassles, and it was more convenient. I saw in today's Sunday paper that their Slingboxes are on sale but they didn't say how much. I wonder if it's any lower, if so I'll go get some money back.

    Battery life? Haven't noticed it drain any faster than it already does, honestly... but I haven't watched it for more than 30 mins or so at a time.

    The Slingbox is "the sh!t". Go get one today... I'm still blown away how well it works and the fact that there aren't any monthly fees.

    I found, roughly, after an hour use my extended battery is down about 20-25%.

    I consider that remarkable actually and since I have charging cradles at home and school it hardly phases me at all.
