    Clarification on when Slingbox actually needs an Internet connection

      According to forum searches and knowledge base article Slingbox.com - Do I need an internet connection to view my Slingbox?, it is still unclear to me whether an internet connection is needed every time a stream is initiated within a local network. This statement "Yes, Streaming on LAN (home network) does not use the WAN connection "ONCE" the connection is established." suggests that it is. I am looking for a solution for viewing of a yacht's DirecTV Satellite receiver on a wireless device (e.g. iPad) also on the yacht while offshore when the Internet is not available.
