So I've been dying to get live tv on my iPad, apparently sling box is the only way to do it. But looking at the sling box site products, they have a sling box solo and a sling box hd. Ihave a coax cable, and that's it, but only the sling box pro has a port for it, but I'm not willing to pay 300 bucks to get the better model just for that... Is there a different (cheaper/older version) that has the same ability to stream to my iPad through the app?
*SlingPlayer Mobile requires use of a Slingbox SOLO or PRO-HD.

I've had the Slingbox Solo for a few years. Though remotely, the iPhone SlingPlayer software quality was borderline; it was eminently usable, especially for keeping watch of business news, talk shows, etc. Recently, I added a new TiVo and somehow broke the Slingbox connection (probably the result of a skipped update which required an additional resetting of the routers). I have not seen it perform on the iPad.
If the reviews are bad I'm not sure that I would go for it though. I believe that there is a new TiVo app up there. It requires the latest models of the TiVo, as I recall, unless something has changed. That would probably be a better alternative at the moment.
Ha man! That's really bad!
I was hoping the slingbox had a good result with the iPad.
But after thinking a second thought paying a minimum of 150$ for hardware and having to pay another 30$ to be able to use it is not a very smart thing.
Adding to that, the company doesn't a good job at fixing issues with the application that you had to pay in the 1rst place.
Thanks guys for the info!
I think I'll pass.
