    Do I need a desktop computer to use slingbox?

    james92se

      I have a desktop PC that is run straight to my modem with an ethernet cable. However, the PC is broken and I don't have plans to fix it anytime soon. I have a laptop that I use via a wireless internet connection.

       

      I am confused as to whether or not the software installed on the PC "runs" the whole setup. If so, will slingbox work with my setup? And, will the laptop always have to be powered on?

       

      Thanks for any help
