Don't know squat about the sling, but this is for the H25:
The Slingbox Pro HD model does infact incoporate a digital tuner capable of both ATSC and clear QAM.carl6 said:Looking at the specs on the slingbox pro hd, it does not look like it has it's own digital television tuner, so you can't hook an antenna up to it for ota reception. If it did, then you could watch an ota channel independent of your friends H25.
I don't see that anywhere on the Slingbox site? It says it has a QAM and ATSC tuner, but in reality that is the same tuner that can be used as either a QAM tuner or an ATSC tuner. The tuner in the Slingbox can't be used for DirecTV at all, you have to have a DirecTV receiver hooked up over component/composite/s-video for them to work together.loudo2002 said:I guess it kinda pisses me off that the Pro HD slingbox says it has dual tuners when in all reality, it doesnt.
