I'd love to be able to have something from DirecTV that gave slingbox-like functionality. It seems like something of that sort may eventually arrive. I've been thinking that in the interim I would get Nomad. I don't want to do that if the more advanced functionality would be available in the near future and be separate from Nomad. Is the Nomad currently all it will ever be, or is it possible that the future streaming product would be a new Nomad feature? I'm close to placing the order but don't like the idea of spending so much on something that might be "dead end" tech and obsolete in 6 months. I know a lot of this is speculative, but I was wondering what others might think/suggest?
