Good Device, Local Streaming Quality lets it down,
This review is from: Sling Media SlingCatcher - Digital Multimedia Receiver (Electronics)
I bought one of these so that I could stream locally from the Sky+ HD box in the bedroom, to the main television in the living room. Using the HDMI connection and a 200mbps homeplug network the slingcatcher connected to my Slingbox with a bitrate of 5400kbps. Even with this high bitrate the quality of the video was still poor and jumpy in some cases. I can see how the slingcatcher is good for viewing remotely, but locally it still doesnt beat the picture quality of ordinary co-axial cable.

Thanks for your post. This is EXACTLY what I would like to do with the Slingcatcher and I saw the res was not brilliant. Ideally I would like HD over a local gigabit network.
