Just thought to let you know that the Slingbox AV will only work through the SlingCatcher as a connected Device. The newer connected devices that you stated, "Netgear, the WD, or the Sony player", will only work with Slingbox Solo, Slingbox Pro-HD, Slingbox 350, and/or Slingbox 500.
In order to watch the Slingbox AV like the way you did before is to find another SlingCatcher. If you can not find another SlingCatcher, I recommend upgrading your Slingbox to either a Slingbox Solo, Slingbox Pro-HD, Slingbox 350, or Slingbox 500 so you can use one of the newer connected devices.
Hope this helps!!!

Looking at eBay right now, the *cheapest* SlingCatcher I could find is $220, which is kind of a ripoff, especially for something used and of unknown reliability. I think I will get a Solo and a streamer - which can do more things than just sling.
My question is now what is the best streaming box to get with a newer slingbox? What has been the most reliable and easiest remote/interface, etc.
