    Does anyone have a working Slingbox setup? If so what hardware and software are you using and what sort of results do you get?

    I'd be using my N1 on either Tmobile 3G or WiFi.

    I'm reluctant to cough up $200+ for a slingbox if the results are poor or there's a cheaper path.

    I have seen slingbox on other devices and it looks just fine. Hardware you really only have two choices: HD or Standard. I don't know if the HD would make a difference on such a small screen but if you use it for anything else then it would be worth the extra cost. Then you will also need the app (I think it's $20-$30) in the app market.

    Like I said I have seen it on a BB and an iPhone 3GS and it looks just fine. It also seem to work fine streaming as long as you had 3G or a wifi connection. My cousin showed it to me in Ca when the box was in Ny. If you really like watching TV and want all your channels that it's probably worth it. I have been thinking about getting a slingbox myself for a while, I just don't have the extra cash for the box right now.

    I use slingbox on my N1 on tmobile. It's watchable even on EDGE, just needs some time to buffer. On 3G its good, but when I go into the directv guide it sometimes takes a while before it brings it up and when I hit the up or down arrow. On hsdpa its lightning fast, and I cant say I've even done it on wifi but it should be just like watching it at home.
