Hi Crossy, Thank you for your reply. Hadn't realised that Currys/Dixons are selling at the same price now but remember this being sold in the region of £199.99 (possibly more) whilst initially rolled out into the U.K. as has been for sale in the U.S.A. for 12-months prior to being introduced over here to the best of my knowledge. Glad to read that this product now supports Mac OS X. Does anyone have any experience using one of these devices on Mac OS X at all?.

Best Regards.

Good spot :thumbsup:

Where: Amazon UK

Dont forget [url]www.cashback-rewards.co.uk[/url] for I believe 3.5% off at amazon.
Come on Quidco... GET AMAZON ONBOARD! The biggest etailer in existence needs to be supported if you intend to be the biggest cashback portal...

This is the European model that doesn't support mobile phones as clients isn't it?

Also, note that it is not clear if Tesco's and Amazon's Slingboxes are the latest models. When the Slingbox was originally launched there was no DTT/Freeview tuner included, but the later models do include this.

Is this the older model?

Cheers,

Martin

Contrary to the info on the Tesco site this does work on a Mac. Details and downloads are at uk.slingmedia.com/obj…352

I may sign up there i have a quidco account but as they dont get cashback with amazon i could get some using the cashback rewards site instead now :thumbsup:

You can actually get this for £85.43 delivered (after Quidco) from John Lewis.

They have it for £99.95, and then add a 50p pen (stock code 76423006) to take it over £100 to get free delivery.

Use a £10 voucher (none of the current crop of £15 ones appear to work at the moment), and that brings the price down to £90.45

My Quidco tracked at £5.02 within 30 minutes, making the total net price £85.43

Looks kinda cool. Looking forward to trying it out.

Kevin: in my mind, your suggestion is exactly what the HUKD site is all about and the best maipulation of vouchers and cashback I have seen for a while.
Would leave multiple rep for you if I could! :thumbsup:

Amazon have now dropped to 3.3% ex. VAT with a ceiling of £5 for electrical items. They were 4.5% ex. VAT at one point! Unfortunately they also take about 3 months to pay out!

Hi, None of the JohnLewis discount codes seem to be working. Guess that they're all expired. Did you use one yesterday that went through successfully?.

Thank you.
Regards.

Edit: NWO851PCH007 is working alright.

Does anyone know if these work OK connected to a Homeplug (or similar) rather than connected directly to the router? Sadly my router is nowhere near an aerial socket...

got one of these the other day and paid alot more not happy! anyone know if i can return it to pc world for the original i paid for it then buy another one for the lower price?

on the upside it works like a dream! very good piece of kit!

yes mate they work spot on when connected to a homeplug!

Can this be used to broadcast cctv images to the net?

I have a 4 camera CCTV receiver that is currently connected to a monitor via BNC out (cctv receiver) to Scart in (tv)

What I was thinking of was whether I could somehow connect the BNC Video out from the CCTV receiver into the Slingbox (use somekind of splitter so I can still view on the monitor as well). Then I connect the Slingbox via a homeplug. The other homeplug would then connect into the router (in a another room). Then view output over the internet!!??!!

Anybody know whether this would work and what depreciation in reception I should expect via the web?

Thanks in advance

Hi, Think that PCWorld offer a 28-day money back guarantee but the product has got to be returned unopened. Not 100% sure on that though.

Edit: Don't PCWorld offer a price-match policy?. Think they do (or used to anyway). Might find that you're entitled to 110% of the difference in price particularly as their own group of companies are selling this for 99.99. Worth a try at a guess.

Good luck.

HTH.

Hi, Is there any particular type of homeplug that you can recommend?. Are the 85mbps one's a little too slow for video or do they work alright in your opinion?. Guess that something like a 200mbps homeplug is required though but not sure. Tried an 85mbps homeplug on a GB-PVR project using a Hauppauge wired MVP and the video was very blocky (can't think of the right word to describe this properly but think that you've an idea).

Thank you.

Fine. Buy the new one at the new price and then take it back with the old receipt. I do that all the time at M&S. Took back a briefcase that I'd bought for £39 (reduced from £79), and then bought it again when it went down to £9, and took it back next day with teh receipt for £39. £30 back on my card :thumbsup:

You can watch a signal from a satellite box, cable decoder etc. Basically if it has a scart lead then you can watch it. You can control most things, change channel etc. You also can tune to any freeview channels and there's an s-video input that mean s you can attach a security camera to it and watch from anywhere in the world. You won't get any sound from the s-video though.

I purchased one last year so my mate on Australia can watch the footy and I can watch the games when away. It's excellent and much better than the streaming sites you find on the web for footy.

I've noticed that Slingbox are selling the device at this price on their own site, so it can't such a great bargain. It's a bit like when Sony used to cut the price of the PS2 and Dixons used to advertise the price cut as if they were the ones lowering the price!

I've got Xbox and PS2 connected to Homeplug 85 and can watch video on both at the same time from my NAS server. I can stream DVD or Divx, it doesn't matter.
