I've been using a Slingbox for the past 2 years with pretty good success. The hardware has been located in a friend's house, connected to his cable line and his internet feed.

Recently, my friend moved and his new house is located outside the city limits, in an area where cable TV is not available. As a result, he now has Satellite TV. I know that there are some differences in using the slingbox with cable and satellite. A have heard that with satellite TV, I would be "sharing" whatever he's watching, unlike with cable where it makes no difference what is on the host TV.

I would like to resume my Slingbox connection ASAP. I am wondering what my options are in leaving it at my friend's house with satellite TV. If it's possible to use additional hardware, what do I need to do? Generally speaking, is a slingbox's satellite reception better or worse than with cable? If possible, I would prefer to keep it there rather than find a new home.

So, you are confessing to "theft of services" for 2 years against a cable company and now you want to drag us into your "conspiracy" to commit "fraud" with your buddy against a satellite provider. Are you kidding me? What the heck's the matter with you? You are a THIEF! And now you come here, to a site that fights bad guys, and ask us to help you commit more crimes! :) :) :)

Two years? That's a couple thousand dollars worth services! No doubt, "grand theft" and a felony crime - serious prison time, Bud!
