    Ok. I looked at the slingbox website and have a simple question. I am wanting to put a tv in another room and still access the HR20 that is in the family room. Will the slingbox allow me to do this or is it only usefull for computers? I have wireless internet. Would it be better to just to try and get another DVR receiver?

    It only works on a PC or Laptop because you have to use software to view the Slingbox.

    The Slingbox is only for use on a computer (or multiple computers but not at the same time), so another receiver would be the ticket for you.

    There will be a device called the Slingcatcher which will be essentially a slingbox -> TV converter. But who knows when?
