I just hope they give a discount if you already paid for the iPod Touch app.
That would be nice considering we already dished out $30 for the iPhone/iPod Touch version, however, I'm not counting on it. If they do a good job, take advantage of the iPad, and not just make a Hi-Res version of the iPhone/iPod app, I'll pay for it.
Better have better res, better framerate, the full remote, and the guide.
Has anyone even tried installing the iPhone/iPod touch app on the iPad? I imagine it will work @ a lower res than the app they will make but if you've been around sling long enough you'll know they are not very fast about releasing software. (I've been waiting for sling mobile for all bberry's for about 2 years now and it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon. If you've tried it and you can full screen it let me know, I would be satisfied with that until the official app comes out.
Yes, it looks like garbage. I have it installed only iPad on the off chance they will play nice and release a universal update and not screw us out of another $30.
I've used sling box for years on all my pc's and at work! The iPhone app works great on the iPad as well. Slingbox is really a must-have.
I'm still waiting on my iPad 3G so I can't test the SlingPlayer mobile yet. I put a video below of SlingPlayer mobile on an iPad. I hope they clean the interface a bit. With the extra real estate SlingPlayer should be more like its desktop counterparts and not have things clutter up the interface.

Wifi looks decent on my ipad as well, but has anybody else tried the SlingPlayer while on a 3G connection? Well I can tell you that it DOES NOT work at all, it freezes something terrible making the current SlingPlayer (iPhone) software unusable while utilizing 3G! This Sux!
A side from the pixel doubling (which I hate), Slingplayer mobile works fine on my 3G iPad; No freezing or stuttering. I do get a particular good 3G connection. I can get speeds from 1.2 - 3 mg/sec.
Congrats my friend! Does it look almost as good as your WiFi stream?
I'm postive I'm not getting near that kinda speed on my 3G here in the San Francisco Bay area. I am happy however that there is hope for me to someday "sling" on my 3G connection.
