I have the new slingbox 500 and I love it, great picture quality. I agree that a slingbox is the way to go, but you do not need to have a TV on. You connect both the HDMI and a component cable to the slingbox and it chooses one or the other based on the programming. The nice thing about the slingbox is you can use the android app, web based application or any number of alternatives (google tv, WD TV, netgear neotv, etc). I use it on the road and use it to watch tv on my projector outside.
