I'm not interested in watching on an ipad in the second location; I want it to be viewable on a TV (or TVs).
Is this possible through a combination of Slingbox and Roamio? If so, what do I need where?
Without regard to how you receive the slingbox remotely, the limitation on video quality will be the uplink
speed of your home internet connection. I can tell you a 2Mb/s uplink does not produce a quality picture, and the remote control delay is maddening. I bite the bullet and maintain a lesser cable subscription at our summer house because, despite being a retired engineer, I have been unable to find a satisfactory way of receiving HD programming remotely from my home system.
