Slingbox HD and FibreOp is a terrific combo
Things you can do with your 30 Mb/s upload...
Traveling gets boring real fast. One of things I missed was local TV. I picked up a Slingbox. It worked "alright", but the picture was not the greatest. The constraint was my home upload speed could not deliver a good picture. At the time, we only had 640 kbps upload. So over time, the Slingbox ended up in a drawer.
Along comes FibreOp and its 30 Mb/s upload. Dig out the old Slingbox (Classic) out. Hook it up. It works but the picture still isn't good enough. This time around, it's the hardware that is the bottleneck. I headed out to FS and picked up the Slingbox HD. Boy, what a difference. Picture is excellent. Very watchable, even sport events show very well.
If you want a place shifting solution and you have FibreOp, give the Slingbox HD a spin.
