    Slingbox Player

      Why does Sling or someone else not make a "Sling Receiver"?

       

      I have a new Slingbox M1 connected to a dedicated DirecTV receiver at my son's house.  I want to watch it at my house over the net on my HD tv.  Works great, but... How crazy is it to have to dedicate a PC, Mac, or an iPad/Apple TV combi to stream to the tv?  Why does Sling not license the content to Sony and let me watch thru my Blu-Ray player like I do with Netflix?  Or thru my Apple TV in the same way?  Or even thru a "$49 Sling Receiver" that looks like an Apple TV and just receives SlingPlayer over the network?

       

      While watching tv I want to use my PC for PC stuff, my iPad for Facebook and email, my phone as a phone.

       

      Has anyone else figured out the least expensive dedicated device to use on the watched tv end of this thing?
