    I've been using the Slingbox for years. Just wondering what you guys thought about it vs the future streaming capabilities of the Roamio (outside of your network).

    I actually bought a Western Digital Streamer with the Slingbox app and it works pretty good. It's kind of like a Tivo Mini just without the monthly fee and a bit slower. As a result I'm leaning towards the basic Tivo Roamio since I already have that and can watch tivo already through the slingplayer app on my ipad.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I loved the old slingcatcher, but my Slingbox 500 does not support it so I use the Boxee box app, with fair results. Since Boxee is now defunct this might be a viable future replacement. I just want to be able to stream from my Tivo over the internet to my ipad, then airplay it or chromecast to a TV set
