I have an HDHomeRun.
You don't have to have any computers on. You just plug in your antenna coax source and connect the LAN wire from your HDHomeRun to your router. It's always on. And whenever someone turns on a computer there are up to two tuners available (if you have the most common dual HDHomeRun).
Can't compare because I don't have the Slingbox. I do know that if you want to do this wirelessly, you'll need a top-of-the-line wireless router. HDHomeRun does not promise any wireless perfomance. But it might work.
