    Newbie - basic questions


      We have a lakehouse/camp and just learned about the Sling world. My question(s):


      1. If we currently have Cox cable, how can we use slingbox to connect the lake house to our current tv? (Two different homes.)

      2. Can you connect a Smart TV through the Internet and watch sports/cable programing over another television using slingbox? Or can it just connect computers and smart phones?

      3. We have a TiVo and a smart TV - I am curious if any of these devices will help the slingbox set up? (I've read that slingbox can connect to DVR devices - does that equal TiVo?)

      4. What sling equiptment do we need? (if any of this is possible)


      I am trying to figure it all out and have been unsuccessful thus far. Both houses have wireless internet.


      Thank you for your time and help!

          Hello wncraig,


          Thank you for using the forums! That's a great question! We do not yet have any SlingPlayer application for any Smart TV. However, you can use something called a Connected Device. An example of one would be a Western Digital TV. It is a small device that connected to your TV via HDMI and has the SlingPlayer application built-in so you can stream right from your TV. It is a streaming player, so it also has Netflix, Youtube, etc..


          If you click on the link below it will take you to a page on our website that explains Connected Devices.



          Hope this helps!
