Question live streaming suggestion with a Series 3

I have been looking at getting a Stream, but then recently decided I might try something else. I have a fully functional TiVo series 3. It is not subscribed to, but I was able to pair a cable card with it (S-card) and make it basically a SUPER no-frills cable box in a workshop area of my house.

It works fine for my needs and since Comcast is only charging me $1.50 for the cable card, it beats renting one of their lousy boxes. Mine is HD too.

That being said, I was thinking I could hook up a Slingbox to the outputs of this unsubscribed TiVo S3 and use it to view live channels outside my home and most likley not disturb anyone watching it in the house (since it in a workshop area). Anyone ever try something similar?

I am also well aware that I would not be able to get any guide data and/or watch any recorded programs with a slingbox, but I currently can't do this anyway and I was mainly interested in "live" TV on the road anyway.

It should work.

I have tinkered with streaming. It works OK - depends on bandwidth, etc.

Streaming over slingbox, etc doesn't work well when you interact with the remote due to lag - so fast forwarding thru commercials is tough. No problem on an unsubscribed unit though.
