    Roger - im on the link for slingbox - tell me more, w/o me going to a store - how much roughly is the pro? Does it work via infrared, so u can control the actual device?
    Any idea on how much a cable costs to connect a laptop to a plasma/ lcd tv monitor, and part 2, whats that cable called??? lol

    I have a ton of questions for you regarding this.. Fellows, Id be able to access the train shows from RFD on my laptop in your living room, this is the technology we are talking about..

    Thanx roger

    hooknlad you need a high speed (cable/dsl) where the sling box is but you can have any speed (dial up wifi) at the receiving end. you can watch your local news in a airport if it has wifi. Its really pretty neat.
