I want to get Roku device for every TV in my house and return the cable boxes (which I'm paying monthly for!) to the cable company, and just stream from my Slingbox PRO-HD to whatever TV I happen to be watching.
I think it would be much more reliable/better quality to route within my local network instead of going out the WAN to the SLING servers and then coming back to my Roku devices on my local TVs.
Is there a way to do this? The network will be a combination of wired devices and devices on different WiFi access points (still on the same LAN, though) and I still want to maintain the ability to stream when I am away from home.
Thanks for using our forums. You have a great question. The way that the Slingbox works is that it does go to the servers first, but when it comes back it will connect to your local network and will use your home internet connection.
Hope this helps,
