          The Slingbox simply transmits the TV picture over the Internet, it has nothing to do with the 'receiving' end.   If you want to watch on a TV you will need some sort of device that allows internet streaming to be displayed and which supports the Sling Player.  Sling used to do a box called the Slingcatcher, but they discontinued it, although you can still pick one up; on E-Bay.   They have produced players for the Boxee box, or if you have a PC/mobile device with a TV-out system you could use that.

                  No.   Contrary to the title, the Pro-HD does NOT support watching HD at a remote location.   The HD in the title probably means it will accept an HD signal via the component inputs.   To be fair, if you are watching it on the same LAN as the Slingbox you will probably get a near-HD picture, but if you are watching remotely the quality of picture you get is 100% controlled by the upload speed at the Slingbox location.   I am not sure of the figures, but I would think on a 60" TV you will need at least a 10Mb upload speed at the Slingbox location to get a picture even approaching HD (And a minimum 10Mb download speed at your remote location as well).  Even then, you are at the mercy of the Internet connection between the 2 locations and at peak times that can slow things down dramatically. 

                  It's all down to the laws of physics
