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.
