That is only true when you are streaming to a device in your house. If you are trying to stream TV when you are away from your house then the quality very much depends on the upload speed your provider supplies. For me, streaming video to my Ipad away from my home network is pretty much a no go because my upload speed is something like 512K.

You are right on about that upload speed. Speedtest.net on my iPad show an upload speed of 5.24 mbps. I too struggled with the 700+ or minus until I got the new modem. I did not change the contract with Comcast, only purchased a new up-to-date modem. Of course your download and upload speeds will vary thoughout the day. However, at 5.24 mbps, there is room for slight variances during the day, while still providing an excellent image.
I'm thing about getting to pro hd for my home to be able to watch it at my work computer network which is fast hooked up to the flat screens in our control room via rga cable from computer to flat screen, it already works really well and picture is great streaming from Justin tv for all the sports the last couple days but wanted more channels such as what the sling box will give. Does it work well on highspeed pc's? And if I get this thing I see that the cable hooks to my linksys wrt54g router as well......do I have to change any settings in my router to view from a pc?

This is win!

There are similar devices for Win, just not as elegant or easy to use.
so like the newer ones, since you have the program on your computer, does the stream speed come from your computer or my actual verizon modem which is pretty fast, bad thing is my laptop sucks and is slow

I use TVStreamer which picks up the HDhomerun tuner on the network and allows me to select the channel I want to view, once selected, it opens in Goodplayer where it streams the live TV. When I want to change channels, I click Done and it returns to TVStreamer so i can select the next channel.
This is a solution that bypasses the need for a Mac or PC to be acting as a server on my network.

Yes, I have windows PCs as well! (too many to list)
