I do. It's totally great if you understand it's capabilities. It isn't hi-def. But you can plug in your cable, a dvd player, even a cable box and watch any of the inputs on your laptop while your wife watches 'Beaches' instead of the ball game. The picture is standard TV definition so if your computer screen has higher res than 720x480 the optimum picture will be smaller. You can watch it full screen, but it will be a little fuzzy. You can change channels and control the DVD or cable box remotely. I only wish I could install the free player software on my work PC so I could - ahem - work. Well worth the $75 if you want to watch YOUR video away from home.
Umm, no, that's not what it appears to do. If you have a cable box or a SAT tuner that you are watching, it literally controls the channel of that unit, whoever is sitting there has to watch that channel too, unless they want to flip around on the locals.
I dont buy the idea if you can hook up a VCR you can hook up this thing since you have to setup your router to forward and port trigger on an internal static IP. What I would like to know is if this can be setup to run the web interface on ports OTHER THAN 80 or 8080 since I have additional things running.
Over 60 WoOts! and counting

I believe you have to get a Slingbox wireless module in order to connect wirelessly...although one of those wall plug units might work. Anyone use those?
ah so i'll need a wireless bridge or a power-line adapter to get this to work. both are more expensive than the slingbox itself. bummer.
