Time shift meets Place shift

By floridave | September 10, 2008

Installed a Sling box at work today. It is a device that streams home A/V to any broadband-connected Mac, Windows PC, Windows Mobile, or Palm Treo 700p device in the world.
Some administrators wanted to gain access to the settop box for seeing if the new billing system will still allow for proper channel mapping , pay per view, etc. They are in a different time zone and wanted access when people are not available.

It went well and is very easy to set up. It is a cool device as now I can verify that channels are operating in the headend without having to go to the headend.
I am also able to watch channels that are available in that town that are not available where I live. Video streaming has come a long way.
