Slingbox

The Slingbox arrived at the factory. I collected it and spent a couple of hours installing it this afternoon. I wish our lounge TV was less heavy. The physical cable connection was pretty straightforward but configuring the wireless Ethernet bridge was a little more challenging. I had made this more difficult by using a Belkin wireless extender as the bridge because I already had it to hand and thought it might do the job as effectively as a purpose-built unit. The Slingbox installation instructions (not unreasonably) do not cover that specific device as a router but there was enough information for me to create all the appropriate links. It is now possible to watch our Virgin cable TV across the internet and control its function. Weirdly, the signal suspends if the TV is switched off.
