    What model to buy

    theMezz

      It is really confusing as to what model to buy?

       

      I know I want HD and I know I have a coaxial cable wire to connect to the slingbox.

       

      I just want to input coaxial from cable tv, no dvd, nothing else really.

       

      So what model?

       

      What does a catcher do ? Do I need a tuner??

       

      Confused !!!!!!!!

          There are really only two choices, the Pro-HD or the SOLO.  There are two main differences, price and the ability to watch a different channel than what someone is watching on your tv.  I bought the SOLO and am happy with it except for the times I am not able to watch what I want because my wife is watching tv in the family room.  The Pro-HD has a built-in tv tuner that allows you to watch a different channel.

           

          With your Slingbox, you can watch tv on your computer, laptop, or some smartphones (require an additional $30 app).  The SlingCatcher is no longer sold.  It was a device that could receive your Sling tv signal and send it to a different tv.
