    Slingbox Pro-HD, Hava Platinum HD or DirectvToPc?

    My primary objective is to watch in the kitchen where there is no cable nor a reasonable means to get one there. I was using a device (RF Link wireless A/V sender), but it doesn't work very well. I have a laptop in the kitchen and wireless in the house. So, I've decided to go with one of the above.

    What's best and why? For the record, I'm leaning toward Slingbox or Hava because I want to be able to change channels on the live feed. Being able to watch over the internet is cool, but wouldn't be used that much (maybe just on my iPhone to impress friends - LOL).

    If you want live TV, I would go with the Slingbox or Hava. I have both, you can't really go wrong with either.

    If your Laptop is capable of displaying HD content then I would go with the Slingbox PRO HD which I just installed today after my last box had a bad ethernet port and was replaced by BestBuy which I just installed and it works great.

    I also have the Slingbox AV which is SD and not HD and works great on my Laptop which does not support HD display but works okay with SD content.

    If no huge advantage of one over the other, I might just go with the less expensive Hava. Plus it comes with wireless capability. They're coming out with wireless n. And, there may be a way to get iPhone support over 3G with it. I'm looking into that.

    I have a Hava. It accepts an HD input, 720p or 1080i, but it down res's to 480. You can record with it. The 480 image looks suprisingly good. It is as good or better than DVD quality.
