      The setup instruction is simple and easy to follow. In my case, high definition channels would not be viewed using the HDMI cable which is mentioned in the instruction. It works terrific with the included component cable.

        Comments about SlingTV:

        I have been using Slingbox since 2007. I love it. The picture quality is great. It allows you to watch using Standard or High Definition. There are multiple ways to set it up (Composite, Component and HDMI). I use mine to watch my TV/DVR in other rooms in the house, on the patio, by the pool and on my laptop or tablet when traveling. You have access to your TV's Program Guide, can control your TiVo/DVR, and it has an on-screen remote control. Also Slingbox customer service is very good if you have questions or need additional help setting it up with your system.There is one thing you must do before purchasing the slingbox, make sure that you have every thing you need to complete the hardware ste up. It comes with an A/V cable and a HDMI cable, but some setups require an additional A/V or HDMI Cable (it depends on the inputs and outputs you have on your TV or set top box. If you call Slingbox Customer Service and let them know what equipment you have, they will be able to tell you if you will need any addition cables. I would definetely recommend this product to others.

            Purchasing and installing the Slingbox 500 in my primary residence allowed me to cancel the cable service in my vacation home. I can now watch all my TV shows from my home setup including what is saved on my DVR. Setup was truly a breeze. I love the fact that it has a HDMI output and can be setup either physically connected to a router or wirelessly. Why didn't I find out about this sooner?

                Comments about SlingTV:

                This is my 4th slingbox and I've had 3 sets of turbo slings. By far this is the best Slingbox experience I've had. The set-up is very fast. Yes it is more expensive to buy the wireless box - but if you can't connect it close to your modem/router then you have to buy turbo slings and Ethernet cords - which adds up. Plus, if you have to troubleshoot it takes quite a bit of time - unplugging, replugging everything in sequence to make sure it picks up the IP address correctly.

                In summary, the fast and easy set-up, and the reliability saves me time. It was well worth the extra expense.

                    Easy setup, Good GUI, multiple inputs, great streaming quality. HDMI doesnt work with HDCP protected content, limiting its usefulness, although the RGB component inputs offer good quality. The addition of WiFi over the previous SlingBox Pro is very helpful.

                        Easy set up. Updated software and then connected to my wireless network. IR repeater has no problem bouncing IR off wall in room to change channels. Pictue quality is outstanding and mobile app allows lower quality to save data use.
                        I own the original classic and now the 500. I have been thoroughly satisfied with Slingproducts. The only caution is the 500 will not stream HD effectively to Windows XP machines so take note.

                            Easy to use once set up. Set up can be confusing if you arent a tech geek but technical help is outstanding.

                              I use the product with my home system. After figuring out the correct wireing hookup the Slingbox has a great picture on my computers and Cell Phone. We have Comcast Business Internet so the signal at my office is high. Both WiFy and 4G has a good HD picture on my cell phone. I would recomend this unit will connect any way you need to make it work!

                                one calbe provider, and our TV channels, recordings, and control of both are always with us ..across the USA, across the world, on TVs, Laptops, and iphones. This implementation of technology deserves wider awareness.
