    Direct TV


      Hello All,


      I'm not sure if this question has been asked before or not but, I couldn't find anything that really answered my questions.  I have Direct TV and recently purchased another HD Television for the living room.  I would like to hook my DirectTV up to the new set.  Direct TV wants $100 for another HD set top box that won't even be owned by me once I pay the $100.  I would like to put the money into something that I'll actually own such as the Slingbox.  My question is...can I buy a Sling box that will allow me to watch Direct TV in the living room without buying another HD set top box from Direct TV?


      Thanks in advance for your help!

          Hi Millerm77,


          I understand your concern, in the other room you will be able to connect to the Slingbox using a computer but not directly to a HD TV, there is another way to do that, you can get a SlingCatcher, so you can connect it to a router and the HD TV and you will be able to connect to the Slingbox using the SlingCatcher in the other room. Right now the only way to get a SlingCatcher is through a 3rd party website like eBay.com, Amazon.com, etc. With the SlingCatcher at home, you also can stream video from your computer to the TV using the SlingProjector, please take a look at these links
