The Slingbox SOLO is designed to make it as easy as possible to set-up and enjoy.

Then all you need to do is download the SlingPlayer software onto your computer and follow the instructions. In minutes you will be ready to watch your home TV via your computer. A quick start guide is included to make setting up your Slingbox a piece of cake.
When connecting your device you should choose the best availble connection type for the best possible picture quality. The yellow composite video connection offers good quality, S-Video better and component leads the best.
You can control most devices that would sit under and connect to your TV. Whether it is a simple set-top box (cable, satellite or Freeview), or a DVR such as Freeview+, Sky+ or Virgin V+, you will be able to view or control everything as if you were sat on your sofa.
Take your home TV with you
wherever you go
Take your TV with you
It is always frustrating if you are going away and you miss the big match or your favourite show, especially if you have paid to watch it. Sometimes watching a recorded version when you get back home is just not the same. With the Slingbox SOLO you won't have to spend the rest of your trip avoiding all media coverage, just so that when you get home you can watch the match as if it were live. Simply take your laptop with you and watch it live as if you were at home. Whether you go away on business trips, like to take a holiday or simply want to be able to watch your TV in another room in your house, Slingbox SOLO will let you take control.
If you have connected a DVR to your Slingbox SOLO, then you can control everything as if you were sat on your sofa with your remote control. If you have forgotten to record a programme, or want to watch something that you have previously recorded, no problem. If you can do it when you are at home, you can do it through your Slingbox.SlingPlayer - The lap of luxury
