Yes it works. It connects using the Hopper's internet connection. Either direct, wifi or HIC.
It's how you stream content (video, pictures, music) from your PC/Mac to your Hopper.LazhilUT said:What is DLNA?

mdavej said:There have been reports of Hoppers connected via a wifi adapter. But it's much better to ask for a HIC so you're hardwired. A HIC also seems to be the only way people are getting DLNA to work at the moment.
If you sling a recording, it takes over no tuners at all.sdallnct said:Does the Sling completely take over the Hopper or only one tuner?
I travel but have family at home. If I'm watching on the sling, can they watch something else on the Hopper or only on a tv with a Joey?

I got the SA yesterday, plugged it in, and while there were some minor workarounds to get things to work the way I though they should work, it was super. This morning, I didn't need any workarounds. I changed channels at will, hit the Hopper's DVR, and generally enjoyed the crap out of streaming CNBC to my iPhone via Verizon. Even though the iPhone 4s is only 3G, I don't really think I need more for such a small screen. I could clearly read the crawler along the bottom of the screen. Streaming rate was bouncing between 400 and 600kbps.
One of my co-workers saw what I was doing and asked about it. I gave him a demo. He was blown away.
This is truly a sliced bread moment!
