    Please use this thread for all "hellos" and anticipation of the app. Thanks!

    We will start with a very small trusted group, and more users will be added once that app becomes more stable.

    So who's all here?

    Thanks to the team for an invite to another trial. This one sounds really interesting and it should be interesting to see how it works on the iPhone 4's new display.

    So... how is this going to affect you guys that don't have the unlimited data plan? Are most of you grandfathered?

    I know that when I use the slingbox I run up a bunch of data time. I was close to 4 Gig on the last billing cycle.

    I kept it. I need to start tracking how much I actually use though to see if I can drop my price. I have Enterprise and am paying $45 a month for it.

    I'm unlimited. Wonder what engine they'll try to use. Build it off SuperCast?

    Supercast would be OK. I just hope that the interface is better than what the Slingbox gives me on the iPhone. I just don't like the Dpad, since it really tends to block stuff on the screen that I need to see to make my decisions.

    Also, hope that's its faster than the Slingbox interface. Sometime it just seems like forever until I get the screen or channel change.

    Regardless, I can't wait to test it.

    Greg... do you know if it's going to be tied to a single machine or will it access all the receivers on our setups individually.

    RIght now, MRV is the best way to go with the slingbox, but I suspect if this app lets us access the different boxes, using it will be a lot faster than what i get with the Sling App.

    You know.... as I was browsing forums, and I think we all realize this, we really need to keep the discussion about this here, and only here. A reference to this app will make the droid boys go crazy over at C3. They'll be doing this --> :hair:

    This is the one I have been looking forward to the most. SO glad I have the unlimited plan.

    Good to see the usual suspects here!

    I am out and about over the next couple weeks and look forward to trying this over various networks between CA and Idaho.

    Am I understanding this correctly? Will this stream over 3G (as well as wifi)?

    Just very excited about this one.

    I am so excited to finally be able to talk about this product to you. It's something I've known about but couldn't disclose until now.
