Slingbox [still] Rules!

One of my favorite gadgets for living overseas is the Slingbox.  It is becoming even more of a favorite since the power supply on my satellite receiver failed and left me without minute by minute unfounded speculation by the US media regarding the presidential election and Mrs. NotHemingway’s fix of Dancing with the “Stars.” (Who are those people, anyway?)

Enter the Slingbox and the new Slingbox firmware and 2.0 desktop software update.  It runs smoother, has a better picture, and is more feature rich than ever.  I’m not sure I’ll use the online buffer much since what we watch is mostly on a DVR anyway but man, the quality and speed have improved by leaps and bounds since we first got it going 3-4 years ago.
