    Here is what I want to do: slingbox 350 connected to my premiere xl-4 and use my Asus transformer prime android tablet - with the slingplayer app and use the tablet's micro hdmi port to connect to a remote tv for remote tv viewing.

    Will this work?
    any cautions?
    Will I have full access to the tivo - including pytivo and vidmgr remotely?
    I have a bunch of movies that I would like to stream remotely too via pytivo.

    Thanks in advance.

    I do this exact thing, with the only difference being that I don't have an Android tablet with HDMI output, I have a Windows Phone and iPad that I use on my two Slingbox 350 and Solo remotely. The only question is if your Android outputs over HDMI while watching Slingbox, which I assume it does?

    It works perfectly fine for me and I don't have any issues. It's too bad that TiVo restricts the stream from working outside the home with mobile devices, because it could replace my Slingbox if it was more fully featured and supported.

    How well does FF thru commercials work with the Slingbox 350.

    I can't speak for the 350, but the delay is horrible with the Pro HD. There is 3 or 4 second delay between button press and seeing it. I use quick skip.

    I second this, 30 second skip is the best way, otherwise you have a hard time getting stopped at the right location.

    Hopefully one day Slingbox will integrate with the TiVo using IP controls instead of IR and it will improve, along with decreasing the lag.

    Note: If you have your Slingplayer set to Control mode on the PC app(they don't support any longer) this isn't an issue, but performance is horrible in my experience.
