    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.
