        Because you would need a high speed data connection in the car for it to be effective...

          i think i saw slingbox software running on a moto Q phone, or maybe it was something else cant remember right now. I think it was though.

          Anything faster than GPRS should be good enough no?
          Doesn't sound too bad of an idea to me. If i had one i would be trying to do the same thing

              It does work pretty well on my setup using a Bell Canada EVDO blackberry tethered via USB. Also handy when I'm meeting someone and I'm early, jump onto a wifi hotspot and catch the news.

              I can't figure out how to embed it properly, but I just launch it fullscreen and close it when I'm done.

                  Slingplayer works fine over EVDO. I watch TV all the time on my pocket PC phone and don't see why I couldn't tether over it and watch TV. As a matter of fact, I'm gonna see how the latency is right now

                    Why wouldn't it work with a slower connection? I watch My Orb over a 156K pocket PC phone all the time. It also works well embedded in RR over my slow connection. If its anything like Orb it checks the data connection speed when you login and adjusts the stream accordingly.

                      This will be a lot easier when HSDP is widespread.

                        Video from Slingbox Website...

                        Gentleman on a train using a notebook and Verizon EVDO to watch a ball game through his slingbox and Tivo.

                        That'll do it. I've got to have one now.

                            Just got back from BestBuy with my new Slingbox in arm. $169.99 on sale... Took about 2 minutes to hook it up. We'll see how it works in the car.

                              My Obsessive Compulsive Disorder kicked in when I saw this thread this morning.

                              Less than 12 hours later I am loving the Slingbox integrated into my mobile CarPC system.

                              Connection:
                              Palm Treo 700p and Verizon Wireless Tethered EVDO

                              Experience:
                              A pleasant one. In fact I'm still laughing and smiling. My "passenger" was able to watch the season premier of 'The Unit' on my Mercedes Benz GL450 front Navigation screen while I drove.

                              It's a slick box and awesome solution. In my case I have connected the Slingbox to my TIVO at the house via S-Video and Audio cables. I then connected slingbox via ethernet to my router.

                              I installed the client software on my home Desktop PC first to get it up and running and tested. It looked great while running on a LAN. It took just a few minutes to configure. Then I ran out to the CarPC and installed the client. I then connected to Verizon EVDO. Using the Slingbox SlingPlayer Client I selected my Slingbox and then it presented a GUI of a TIVO remote control. Then audio starts then video starts off a bit choppy for the first few 3 - 7 seconds while the program adjusts best resolution for connection speed and Slingbox's internet upload speed.

                              Then away you go. I ran for about 35 minutes while driving all around with barely a stutter.

                              While I was watching the program I purposely disconnected my tethered EVDO connection. It appeared as if I had about 7 - 10 seconds of cached Audio and Video when I yanked the connection.

                              Works with just about any cable box, Satellite Receiver, DVR, DVD player etc...

                              Screw putting an antenna in your car for crappy analog TV when you can watch your favorite recorded show or Cable / Satellite streamed to a carpc, laptop or desktop near you.






                              Didn't mean to Hijack your thread TN... Back to your question:
