I have two TiVo's in my main cabinet, will the slingbox work ok with just one of them?
You might need to build an IR fort if the sling starts to change channels on the wrong tivo
You can set the Slingbox to the correct code.
Really? Even with the correct code?
The 'ir fort' is not an option, they are on top of each other, and still need to be able to work with the normal remote and the leapfrog.
Not with the correct code. I have two right next to each other on different codes and never have a problem using the slingbox on one from upstairs and someone else using the other.
You just need the correct code that has a TiVo address of other than Zero, and the TiVo and its remote set to that address.
Can you watch something while it's being recorded and will it work with a non-TiVo DVR?
Slingbox works with pretty well any video source. It does not record anything, simply relays video output from the device out across the net to a computer or cell phone. It's kind of like one very long composite video cable running from the source to the computer.
Now I'm biting...
I want to be able to connect an HD TiVo and an S3 TiVo. Do I have to get a Pro to be able to do this? Or will a Solo do what I need? I don't really care about being able to watch in HD from it because chances are I won't be watching on an HD TV. I'm assuming that I'd have to be watching on an HD TV in order to be able to take advantage of the HD picture. I know that with the Pro you also need to get the HD connect.
Of course, I'd want to be able to control both TiVos remotely. I saw where "The remote however can only control one TiVo as you cannot assign a number to it."
Can someone elaborate? Does this mean what I think it means? Don't plan on using it with two different TiVos because you can only control one of them?
veruca salt : My advice would be to buy two slingbox classics.
I have two classics, one connected to an S3 and one an S2. When you fire up the Slingplayer the first thing it does is ask which TiVo you want to connect to.
If both TiVo's are in the same location you get the option to define which remote number you are using when you set up the slingbox itself.
The SOLO can only handle one input. Although it might be worthwhile to get 2 SOLOs. That way both can be connected to component to get the best video quality. The classic will give you less video quality than the SOLO, but if video quality isn't an issue, you could always get two of those.
