    Slingbox to a Cheap computer for TV

    DLDude

      I am going to be working on a 6-month contract in another city. I currently have great cable at home, and my company has rented me a short-term finished apartment with a decent HDTV. I want to be able to sling my home cable over to my temporary HDTV. My laptop is a business-only thing so I really can't use that. I've been searching for a cheap solution. I thought perhaps an HTPC or Nettop would be the best option (I also have Netflix so it can be nice to stream movies). The cheapest nettop I can find is around $300. I'm wondering if you know of any way to receive a sling more easily and cheaply? I'm hopeing for less than $200.
