I've been thinking about getting a Slingbox but I'm curious on how I would hook it up. My HR20, hooked up to my tv via HDMI, is in the Family room. I have a Linksys wireless router connected to cable in a bedroom and the computers are in another room connected to Linksys router via the wireless usb devices.
What would be the hook up steps? I won't be able to run anymore wires around the house.
This is all new to me.

Slingbox sells a unit that would be prefect for you (see link below). I have not used it with my Slingbox because my router and Slingbox is only about 10 feet away from each other. I also have a S-Video cable and audio cables coming from my HR20 to the Slingbox.
