    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent on the go TV viewing I own the Slingbox Pro prior and upgraded to the 500. I was blown away by the features specifically the wireless connection as there's no more hassle of connecting an ethernet cable from the box to the router but the option is still available. Just got wireless cable and the 500 mates with it beautifully as I don't have to bother physically connecting a cable connector to the rear of the unit. The new Slingplayer is awesome as it has more controls to manipulate the 500. I can access the 500 on my Android phone and tablets, iPad, and on Windows tablet/laptop/desktop and getting the program on the Microsoft Store which is free by the way. I like to watch local programs when I'm travelling and when away from home. I have unlimited data on my cell phone and that's a plus. After the firmware update the setup was a breeze. There is a mention of the possibility of not being able to view programs using the HDMI cable exclusively because of protection rights but I connected mines thru aux cables instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slick, simple, complete I was fretting about paying for an extra TV service at our second home. This is the perfect solution. Fantastic hardware and the software setup had me up in less than 20 minutes. Fyi, I used the HDMI connections and have CAT5 ethernet, so I have very high quality on the input. So far, although this wasn't my primary use case, it is amazing to watch TV from our android phones and tablet. I can't wait for our upcoming trip to our second home to see how well it works 3,000 miles away, with a fast internect connection on the other end as well. Someday, though, I hope all we pay for is bandwidth - for phones, internet, TV without having to pay for these silly huge packages where we only watch 6-8 channels. The business model has to change, but for now the Slingbox is just what the doctor ordored.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY EASY setup, couldn't have been simplier!!! I bought the Slingbox 500 and was amazed how easy it was to set up compared to problems I've had over the years with my old Slingbox Pro. I loved the on screen set up guide once all of the connections were made and the full HDMI connections are great for remote viewing quality.
