    Viewing/Recording Media While Abroad

    matterest

      I understand the basic conceit of SlingBox - I can access my HOME CABLE SIGNAL (or someone else's HCS's ie. my parent's) while I am abroad.

       

      But, let's assume I'm piggybacking on my parent's cable signal.

       

      1) Am I correct in assuming that it won't adversely affect their device?  They will be able to watch TV regularly, and I won't screw up their TV watching experience in any way?

       

      2) Regardless of what they record and store on their home DVR - is there a way for me to schedule and record my own shows on a device that is physically wherever I am abroad?  What would that storage device be?

       

      3) As opposed to simply watching this content on my laptop or mobile device, can I playback that recorded content on a home HDTV?

       

      Thanks in advance for your help!
