Also, when you're using your slingbox, the cable box that the slingbox is hooked up to cannot be used by anyone in the location where the slingbox is. Well, they can use it, they just have to want to be watching what you're watching. Does that make sense? Basically, if you're watching the Rangers in DC on the slingbox, and someone in NJ goes over to the television that the slingbox is hooked up to and decides to watch Honey Boo Boo, you will be watching Honey Boo Boo as well. (I hope this paragraph makes sense).

I used a slingbox my entire freshman year at UB while dorming, and it was fantastic because the internet allowed it to be. When I moved off campus, however, it was a completely different story and led to me purchasing Center Ice because the feed was so terrible due to the internet.

Hope that helps!

Yes, that does. How would you say the difficulty of setting everything up is? Also, did you watch it on your computer or TV? I've heard that trying to stream it on a 42" HDTV won't come up as good, but we'll see.

Ideally, I would just get an extra cable box at home and not connect a TV to it.
