The Slingbox doesn't receive channels Turok, it enables you to watch whatever it is connected to on a remote computer and that is all.

To receive channels from the US, you would need someone with a Slingbox in the US and the Sling viewer on your PC.

I would love one of these, the concept is cute, however maybe a few more years when residential upload speeds are increased......im only about 260k upload :(

For anyone interested in the concept:

I bought a slingbox a few weeks back and tested it with BGonaStick. - He is in Brighton on the south coast of England & I am in southern Scotland not too far from Edinburgh.

his report is here:
