I just ordered a Slingbox 350 on the Amazon $70 flash sale. I'm hoping I can set it up to control my TWC Cisco STB to stream to my computer for recording with PlayLater - has anybody tried this?...

If you can play the ISO on a PC with VLC and a MP4 (say) on the tablet then it seems pretty clear that the android version has some limitation decoding ISO. I can play MP4 or MKV on my KFHDX but...

Just sayin' gigabit ethernet wouldn't make much sense without USB3. Together, along with a fast processor, they could provide some worthwhile NAS-like capabilities.

Of course the SMP with all that...

I'm sure you're not interested in troubleshooting but I'm curious if you switched USB ports? I seem to vaguely recall a long-ago discussion of some flakiness with one of the ports?
