    Suggestions and advise

    bigrobuk

      I am having a tv installed in my summer house which has power but nothing else.

      I will be using a home plug to give internet access to my DLNA tv.

       

      Is there a sling or any device, I can place on my main tv/sky via coaxial to the sling, and then access on my tv.

       

      If not would I need to plug in a laptop or something on the tv in the summerhouse to enable this to work.

       

      I have tried to find some coaxial tv over homeplug with no success, so any suggestions would be considered.

       

      Thanks in advance

              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.
