I have a PRO-HD. It works well with Shaw Direct.

As long as you understand that it's streaming technology won't really replace another receiver(as far as image quality is concerned). Buton the go it rocks. I use the iPhone app all the time. Extremely useful when you forget to set a timer. I also use it alot when I travel.

How about the slingcatcher?? i was thinking of getting the Pro and the Sling catcher to use with our vaction property. That way i could still use that reciver, just use the slingcatcher at home and have th PRO at the Vac. property?? Should work right?? As long as i have a decent high speed connection at both locations..

I think the slingcather is good option for people who don't want to buy another 530 but want PVR functions at another tv inthe house.. cool product.

I thinki have to get one.. Costco has them??
