I have a homeplug set up, which does link the internal internet to the summer house. I have looked through the FAQ but this has not given me the information I need. Hence this post.
I am not able to work out if I can use the Sling product without having to plug in a laptop or computer,
The TV I want to watch has network, and is dnla but does not have a browser. So is the only way to use a computer in the summer house?
Or will the sling work with the DLNA?
You need a separate Slingplayer application.
This can either be 1) via a browser on a PC connected to the TV, 2) a Slingcatcher device, 3) a Boxee or Logitech Revue device, or 4) a combination of the iPad Slingplayer application streaming via AirPlay to an Apple TV connected to the TV.
Those are the main methods I am aware of.
Maybe in future Sling will write a native application for whatever TV platform you are using.
