My local store has the following offerings:
Slingbox Solo €149
Slingbox Pro HD €249
I am trying to stream contect from my cable (UPC digital in ireland non HD) box in my parents house to my own house. I have access to a box in my old room in my parents that no one uses , is there any advantage to getting the pro version, or is the built in tuner any use? ..again will be connecting to a box that i have sole use of.
How can I access the different channels and recordings and set recordings on the solo if it doesnt have its own tuner?
If I dont have HD will the picture quality be any better?
upload speed in my parents house 1.5mbs
Watch and control live or recorded TV from any PC, Mac desktop or laptop computer - both boxes can do apparently
The pro has all of this extra:
Built-in tuner avoids conflict with viewers at home
Built-in analog & HD digital (Clear QAM) cable tuner
Built-in analog & HD digital (ATSC) antenna tuner
Connect and control multiple audio / video sources
would i be correct in saying the Solo tries to access the cable boxes tuner while the Pro has its own one? would this work on a cable digital box anyway?
