As the title says, since E* owns Sling... how about a Slingbox forum on DBSTalk?

It seems to me that might be more appropriate for DISHPeripherals.com... with sub-forums for SlingBox, SlingPlayer, Archos, et al ? :D

Thanks for the suggestion.

We have discussed this privately and it's decided that a slingbox forum is not really in line with our focus on satellite. Slingbox stuff is also covered on other forums nicely.

When Dish Network releases a receiver with Sling integrated, we will re-visit this request and possibly open a forum for that receiver.

Thanks!
