    More than one iPhone

    ajsistak

      I have two iPhones in household.  Can I use the Slingbox Pro-HD for both phones or do I have to have two sling boxes?  And if that works, can we both use our iPhones while using the Slingbox at the same time?

          You  can install Slingplayer Mobile for iPhone on up to 5 iOS devices which  are tied to your iTunes Account.  You can use either iPhone with the  Slingplayer (client) to connect to any Slingbox (server).  However, only  one person can connect to the Slingbox at any given time.  Sling Media  advertises this to their OEM partners as "SlingSecure"

          SlingSecure means placeshifted content is secured and limited to only one authorized user at a time

          • Studio-approved content protection system
          • User and device authentication so that only authorized viewers have access to paid content

           

          The  only  way I found to be able to watch the Slingbox from multiple points  is  to use a program called mReplay Broadcast (http://www.mreplay.com/broadcast/).    While it isn't exactly meant to be used for the Slingbox, it can   rebroadcast whatever you see on the computer's desktop to live  streaming  sites like Skype,  MSN Messenger, Justin.tv, or Ustream.tv as  a virutal  webcam.
