If your slingbox is in the UK and connected to the internet you can view either the inbuilt tuner or your connected device(s) anywhere in the world you have internet access - I have viewed my Humax PVR from my hotel bedroom in Spain and was able to set up recordings from the tv schedule. Hope this helps
will Sling Box Pro operate sufficiently well using a mobile wifi application at the receiving end 19 Dec 2013
Fro my experience, that should not make any difference to the quality of the final picture. The most important thing is the the speed of internet upload from the slingbox and secondly how the speed of the signal is maintained along the journey to the slinbox and the receiving device (which is the one you can't do much about, apart from move closer to the slingbox, which defeats the point.) So long as your mobile download speed is good say 2M, should not make a difference.
I would like to help but I don't know. I use it to send a Virgin Media Tivo signal via HDMI and it works well.
Will it work with Android devices? 17 Feb 2014
Please NOTE that Slingmedia App costs money. I dont think you can install the Slingbox using an Android evice I think it needs to be set up using a PC. I have used the Pro HD (and an older Pro - red version though sling dont support this) with Slingmedias app, on my Android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich, I cant say what else it will run on - you will need to purchase the App for each Android device and you do need bandwidth - it works both within the house using internal network wifi and outside using wifi or gsm data (do check your costs as it uses a lot of data) - on my Phone its difficult to use the remote control features as the size of the screen is small and my fingers are large. You have access to what ever devices you have set up with the Slingbox, ie the Coax input or other devices you have installed ie my PVR. I have not tried hooking my phone to my TV via HDMI to see what the picture looks like. Note you can use a laptop notebook or computer to view slingbox remotely too, at no cost for an App. You do also have access to the full remote control of your device so you can set recordings up for future viewing and also watch live and or other recorded media. Note DO NOT rely on the internal tuner of the Sling box it is SD only does not have a channels list/tv guide- the Pro-HD software has been updated to so that the internal tuner does not crash but the Pro's tuner fails - see comments elsewhere. MySlingboxes are connected to Humax PVRs - the HD-Pro to a Freesat box, the HD to a Freeview box Hope that helps you
