WOW this sounds big! I have slingbox, but this seems to be the best solution to date! Great thing is I already have a Hauppauge WinTV card in my computer! Hopefully my model is compatable, and I can purchase the $10 software! Stay tuned as I will try it when I get home tonight! :D
Big thanks for the news!!

@baaagear. Did you get a chance to try it yet? I really want to know how this looks with 3G, as it could push me over the edge and make me order another iPad (I have a 32gb wifi)

I tried last night and downloaded the software, but found out after calling them this morning that I needed their CD Rom with the complete program on it. It's $10, no problem, but they DO NOT have a pay download system so I have to wait for snail mail to deliver it to me now :( And here I thought this was 2010, go figure...
