Slingbox? Nomad? Help!

I see that Dish has Slingbox built in but we would be getting rid of the only Dish installation if we were to do this. Any other options that I'm missing?

If you need local stations while there you can call up and tell DirecTV to update your service address to the address of the cabin. But I believe they will only let you do this a certain number of times per year. Don't expect to be able to switch back and forth every weekend. You could also think about adding an AM21 and OTA antenna to get the local stations at the cabin if you can get OTA there.
Be aware that this is against the terms of service if someone is still at your house watching DirecTV while you are using it at the cabin. If nobody is at your house when you are using it at the cabin you should be fine. I wouldn't try hooking it up to internet service at the cabin though because DirecTV might see that you have active receivers at two different locations and bust you.
