    Hi -
    I'm about 90% sure I'm going to drop Windows Mobile and upgrade to the new Hero that is coming out for Sprint next month. I'm going down my checklist of my favorite apps to see if there are Android equivalents.

    I have a Slingbox, and apparently there is no Slingplayer yet for Android. I used to use Orb a long time ago on Windows Mobile before my Slingbox and was wondering if Orb works on Android/Hero. I tried searching but "Orb" is too short of a search term for the forum and Googling just lead to a lot of old articles (late 2008) asking for Orb support for the G1. I couldn't really find confirmation if Orb is working on a Hero and how the quality is specifically for streaming live TV broadcasts. I'm not that concerned with streaming other media such as music or prerecorded video.
