    Using Slingbox in Ireland without Cable Service

    caherpeak

      I just purchased a Slingbox Solo, intending to connect it directly to my new iDTV, as I don't have cable or satellite service. However, I understand I can't connect it directly to TV. I have been told I could connect a Slingbox Pro HD directly to TV, as this has a built in tuner. Before I upgrade though, can I instead just use a Saorview receiver between the Slingbox Solo and the TV? Someone told me this would not work as Saorview uses MPEG-4 video compression, and that the Slingbox Solo I purchased may be MPEG-2, but I wanted a second opinion.
