    I've searched for it and it doesnt show up in the market for me. I'm running the latest Froyo, but someone at work with a droid on 2.1 finds it right away...wth?

    Well I figured it out, works great.

    I was all psyched for this, until I realized you have to have the latest Slingbox. It says if you have an older Slingbox you will have limited functionality? WTF does that mean, I can only get channels 1-32, 50 -65...

    If this came out BEFORE the NBA Finals ended I'd go and buy a slingbox just for this app.

    Now I've got nothing to watch all summer :p Hopefully the prices will drop by the time I need this :)

    I have a Slingbox AV and it does work but I am getting a lag between audio and video. Has anyone else had this issue? I am wondering if the problem is I am using the older AV model and I wonder if I got a solo if it would work better?

    Does anyone have the SingBox HD? Can you get HD quality over 3G? My SD content looks pretty good.

    From what I hear, it'd lag worse with an HD broadcast, and the difference wouldn't be noticable due to the small screen. Now, if you were using the HDMI-out jack to watch it on a big TV then you'd want to be on a 4G / WiFi network and broadcasting HD.

    So I bought it today...still trying to get to someone in sling to see if I can transfer to windows mobile key to android...I played with the app for about 2 hours....even on wifi the picture isn't as good as I anticipated...but definately better than nothing and if it still costs me 30 bux...so be it!

    update: Answer is no transferring keys from one mobile type to another (ie blackberry to Iphone to Android to WinMo)

    I'm using TestTube to watch my Hava and have the same lag between video and audio. The dev says it is the way Android handles media and he would have to patch the OS for it to sync. It sounds like the sling player is having the same problems. I think you just saved me $200!!!

    Can you hook up the Slingbox directly to your cable or must it go through a cable box? I guess if it doesn't have a tuner you could always hook it up to an old VCR or something?

    The solo doesn't have any kinf of tuner, you would have to hook it to a cable box, vcr, etc. The Pro-HD "Includes built-in analog and HD digital Clear QAM cable tuner and ATSC antenna tuner" in addition to hooking up to any other kind of tuner. Here is the link to the various products: Sling Media - Hardware

    Well, the HD is $260, so will have to take the plunge on that one

    I was hoping that the VULKANO be out there, but the website for monsoon multimedia originally stated that it would be ready for April, then May, and now it says summer 2010

    Baloney, I am not waiting for them anymore

    You can pick up a Hava Platinum, new, at Amazon for $130, add TestTube from the market for $3 and you have a nice setup. I wouldn't wait on monsoon to deliver anything in a reasonable time. We've been waiting for over a year for fixes to the windows mobile client and almost that long for the android client they announced.

    It allows your phone to receive the output of a Slingbox. In my case, it would allow me to watch At&t UVerse on my phone.

    I have a Hava, GOLD though, I downloaded the TestTube application, but no dice, it doesn't work with my Droid, it only tells me that the Video Cannot be played

    Oh well

    Take a look at the testtube group in google groups. It has a lot of information on configuration. I've been running it on my droid since the first day it came out. I have the platinum. There is a download on the myhava.com site to update the gold to work with the newest pc app, maybe that would help too. I get the Video cannot be played once in a while, I just start it again and it works. Good luck!

    Works perfectly on my EVO with a three year old Slingbox. Not sure of the model. Better than I expected on 4G and wi-fi. We'll see on a lessor signal.

    I tried my Slingbox A/V on my home wi-fi network and on 3g while I was running errands. It ran very well on both.

    Is anyone using the sling box classic? Do I really have to buy a new sling box?

    I have seen people state in other forums and news stories that it works, but with limited functionality. I have not seen them explain exactly what the "limited functionality" is though...You can just try it, you have 24 hours to return and get your money back :)

    I have SlingBox Classic and it worked beautifully yesterday. I streamed a couple of movies while working. Today, I am getting "connection failed" errors about 90 seconds in. The first 90 seconds are great. Not sure what the problem is. I haven't changed anything. hope this isn't the "not supported" they are talking about. Anyone else having connection failed errors?
