I have just gotten the slingbox solo. I hooked it up and got everything going not knowing how much bandwidth it used. Well I also have a slingcatcher. I wanted to put my slingcatcher upstairs in my bedroom and watch my DVR shows in my bedroom also. Well when i watch the shows does that only go thru my network or does it go thru out on the internet.

Just wondering and conserned about the bandwidth.. My ISP doesn't like it when we use a lot of bandwidth...

You can set up the Slingcatcher to stream either over the internet or through your home network.

Actually the slingcatcher can tell if the slingbox is remote or local. Make sure you have a good local network connection or it will not work as well.

I'm glad I got the HAVA platinum HD vs the Slingbox.

If you're setting up both the Catcher and Sling at your home then bandwidth won't matter it will all be over your local network.
