A netcitizen --somewhere-- wrote that the slingbox software is open source. I've made an initial attempt to verify that, but failed. I don't see it on slingmedia's website.
The slingbox bypasses the double-select bug since it uses a IR blaster. That's attractive.
I'll be watching them for a few months, and am prepaired to snap one up if they get ubruptly get sued, heh (I have no data on the odds, heh).

It would be nice to watch any show on a DVA Server on a wearable Display via slingbox. Why don't one of you rich, successful guys try it!

Note: The first wearable display
1966 (F) Sutherland creates first computer-based head-mounted display [MIT]
Sutherland created a tethered HMD using two CRTs mounted beside each of a wearer's ears, with half-silvered mirrors reflecting the images to the user's eyes. Another system determined where the user was looking and projected a monoscopic wireframe image such that it looked like a cube was floating in mid-air. The bulk of the system was attached to the ceiling above the wearer's head, earning the system the nickname "Sword of Damocles."
