    help w/ newbie

    trailblazur

      hey all,

       

      i've just recently heard about slingbox on the sports radio station and wanted to ask a couple of questions.

       

      first, would it be possible to setup a slingbox at family's house in st. louis, where we're from, and stream it to our tv in orlando, where we live?

       

      if so, what all equipment would i need to buy and how would i go about setting it up?

       

      our family has dish network provider as well.

       

      thanks in advance!!!

          Hi trailblazur,

           

          I understand that you have some questions about the Slingbox and how it works.

           

          The Slingbox is a network device that will allow you to send the home TV signal to the Internet. You will be able to get the remote connection using a supported device (computer, tablet or phone). The following links will allow you to get the information about the requirements on both ends and supported devices.

          Yes, since is the main goal for the Slingbox. It will allow you to get the remote connection to your supported A/V source (cable box, DVR or satellite receiver).
