I purchased a Slingbox 500 with the intent of recording to it (duh). The nice gentleman at Best Buy said that it was possible to record to the Slingbox (like a DVR). So he sold me the Slingbox and said "have fun". I cannot seem to find anyway to record with it (unless I buy something like Jacksta and record the slingbox output to my PC - a terrible solution by the way).
So do I need to return this for a real DVR or is there something I am missing?
The Slingbox itself, does not record; but it does give you the ability to set the recording on your set top box from a remote location. From what you're saying, it sounds like your set top box doesn't have a DVR of it's own, is that right?
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
