I recently purchased a slingbox for travel and found out the hard way that it wasn't what I needed. Evidently the resorts we tend to stay at don't have the highest bandwidth available and thus the slingbox is impossible to watch.
Am now considering the nomad and was hoping for some input from those of you that have the unit. Any input, good or bad, greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I know I'm late responding to your initial post and you've already bought your nomad but for anyone else who may be on the fence I want to echo the enthusiastic comments of others who have posted. In fact, I've been meaning to post about how useful we've found the nomad. My wife and I recently did a cruise to the Bahamas which involved both a long flight and expensive, dial up level speed on-ship Internet. Obviously, a streaming solution is out of the question for watching on a cruise (or a plane). The nomad is a perfect solution. It made the flights and layover go by very quickly with little stress. And, although we didn't actually end up watching much on the cruise itself, it was nice to know we could. As others have said, it is very nice to be using your nomad on a trip and know that you're not paying additional money for content - you're really extending the value of your existing subscription, and that is very satisfying.
I hope they continue to support and develop the nomad platform. On my wish list: remote access to your DVRs through the nomad app. This way, when you're on a trip you could remotely see what new recordings you have, select them for encoding, and download to your device (if you find you happen to have the bandwidth to do so). It would be nice to have the ability to get shows that have been recorded to your DVRs after you left the house. We've found that we have enough to watch as it is but this would be a nice option.
