    I want to report that on my last trip to Tucson, I decided to stay at another hotel (Embassy Suites at the airport) and I got fabulous results with the Sling. I had rates in excess of 500 Kbps and the Sling worked very well.
    I amazed my wife by watching a program together with her at home and me controlling my Tivo remotely. Even, I was amazed. Great Toy!

    I have a Slingbox, but I don't really use it. I hooked it up and then gave the password to access it to a friend who doesn't have cable. It only has RF tuner access (I have too many TiVos to control effectively through a Slingbox).

    BTW, I plan to allow my son who resides in Seoul South Korea to access cable programming in California with the Sling. Does anybody have any experience with foreign country access and achievable throughput rates?

    Not Asia. I have used it in the UK, Germany and Amsterdam and have generally had 200-400k (450k is the max my upload will stream).

    I watched an episode of 24 in Amsterdam without any hicupps. I normally watch sitcoms and other non-action shows, but had no problem with 24.

    I just got a Slingbox. I'm traveling for the next 13 weeks on and off and want to watch the Soccer World Cup. I installed the player and setup remote viewing and everything is working fine, I really hope my Hotel in Jackson, Tn has a good connection.

    I could have really used one this summer, but the Mac client isn't out yet.

    They started accepting applications into their Mac beta program tonight. So will you buy now or after testing? ;)

    Any news on whether TiVo will come out with a Slingbox-like product – not a Stream. Want to access my TiVo away from my network.

    Hmmm...I am not sure I get what we are talking about here...

    Why not just by a Slingbox instead of wishing for a TiVo Slingbox-like product?

    Am I missing something (not really a questions since it is obvious that I AM missing something)... What is it that I am missing? :)
