Advertisements I've been debating what my next step is and one of the options is to add a Slingbox to my setup, but I want to understand it all better. I have a Roamio OTA (lifetime) with a cable card that works just fine. I also added a TiVo Stream and that's been nothing but a headache akin to playing roulette with even worse odds. It always connects, but almost never has the Play icon to allow me to play what's recorded. Even when it works, much of the content it restricted. TiVo needs to do MUCH better than this if it's going to survive. The Slingbox seems like one huge bandaid on the surface to me, one that will cost me hundreds of dollars -- and thus my TiVo setup would end up being nearly $1,000 to get a decent STB. At those rates it almost makes it worth putting up with the lousy FiOS DVR. Plus it appears as if it needs another entire ethernet port and component cables? So I'm assuming this is grabbing content either before or after the TiVo? Where is the content stored? Do I really need to spend several hundred dollars on this to get reliable streaming in other rooms and while on the road as the cost to wanting a TiVo STB? Thanks. I don't mean to sound harsh, but just want to clearly lay out the hurdles.
