About £77 at Expansys when you add on postage. But, as you say, they do often send out vouchers to existing customers. It used to be cheaper.

ive never understood the point of these.

Arent home upload speeds too slow to be of use when you are out travelling around?


Can anyone tell me when they use slingboxes? I.e. on what occasion (and i dont mean when you want to watch tv that youve recorded at home, from a remote location!!!)

1. To set something to record when I forget.
2. To wind up the other half when I'm not in.
3. To watch both live and recorded TV (I know I'm not allowed that answer for some reason but thats what I use it for so I've included it)

Upload speeds can be restrictive but mine has always been good enough for me.

I know you are only trying to help but I personally don't like leaving my pc on when I go on holiday and I don't have a tv tuner in my pc, so I don't really see the comparison sorry.

How do you use it to wind up the other half???!!!

Aha I see so its used as a PVR, can it go straight to an external hard drive or does it have to be to your PC?

It's not a PVR in itself...the Slingbox is used to send a video/audio signal, that you have plugged into the Slingbox, to a slingplayer client/software somewhere else where an Internet connection is available.

So you can have a PVR like Sky+, or CCTV camera plugged in or just use the inbuilt tuner to watch Freeview.

For example I was watching a Top Gear recording off of Sky+ when I was out in India towards the end of last year.

As for winding up the other half, I'm guessing potatouk changes the channel when he/she sees someone is at home flicking through the channels :)

Yep pretty much, or turn it off when pretty much any soap is on, or my favorite is to cancel the recording reservations and claim that they couldn't have been set right in the first place :thumbsup:

As far as I am aware, this model wouldnt work, you would need the current SlingBox which you can see at http://uk.slingmedia.com/go/slingbox

I'd be happy to be proved wrong though if anyone has it working. :thumbsup:
