The one "problem", is that while you are watching from Armpit-du-monde, ON, no one can watch anything that you aren't on that TV in BC; you basically take over the remote (from wherever you are).
How literal is that? i.e. Can I change the channel and what not and it likewise changes for them)? And does it only hamper the one TV set, or the house's entire cable hookup?
I'm not sure TCL is right on this one. First of all, mine isn't even hooked up to a TV (just a spare cable jack near a modem), and secondly nowhere in the instructions does it say that it affects the televisions where the slingbox is. If fact I'm pretty sure it explicity says it does not (I can't confirm this as the instructions are back in BC). Changing the channel on the slingbox shouldn't, and doesn't appear to alter anything on the original TV it is hooked up to.
I can say with 99% certainty that it doesn't affect any of the TVs where it is set up in the slightest.
