Currently paying for cable in two places and investigating using slingbox to eliminate costs for 2nd location (M1 seems like the right option for me as I just want to have same access in both locations). Have AT&T Uverse Internet at both locations, so any answers that are ATT Uverse specific are greatly appreciated.
Trying to determine:
1) Most reliable/independent option to stream at 2nd location (Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, etc)?
All except Fire seem to require a dedicated device (phone, PC, tablet, etc) to initiate and manage use at 2nd location. User friendly is a serious consideration as wife and kids will need to be able to use.
2) Best speed required for the money (saw 2 MBps, but see this as a minimum)?
Would like to get reliable quality with minimal buffering, without having way more bandwidth than actually needed considering paying for higher speed Internet 2x in lieu of 2nd cable/satellite charges.
