Thanks to Sling Media, I've just received a brand new Slingbox SOLO which Sling Media recently announced and launched in North America incl. the US and Canada as well as in the UK.
The new Slingbox SOLO, a freshly designed new Slingbox that can connect to a standard definition or high definition set-top box transforms PCs, Notebook, Macs and for sure Windows Mobile smartphones as well as Palm devices and Nokia phones into personal, portable TVs and builds upon the goals of the original Slingbox - giving consumers the freedom to view their home cable, satellite or digital video recorder (DVR) programming on a wide range of devices anywhere they can access the Internet.

The Slingbox SOLO includes standard (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) video support and streams in full VGA resolution (640x480). Slingbox SOLO accepts inputs from either standard definition or high definition set-top boxes, giving you the ability to connect virtually any Audio/Video device via component video, S-Video or composite video connectors and features integrated looping outputs for each input.

Well, before I'm starting with the hardest part of the review, connecting the Slingbox SOLO to my Microsoft Windows Media Center and set-top box, to watch TV the next 24 hour (to get a better feeling what the Slingbox SOLO can do better than the Slingbox Classic), here we go with a couple of photos first:




The Slingbox SOLO will be available nationwide through Sling Media's retail partners, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, Buy.com, Circuit City, CompUSA, Fry's, J&R and Micro Center as well as SlingMedia.com for a suggested retail price of US$ 179.99.

Cheers ~ Arne

Woohoo... big_smile Great! I can tell you, it's worth every Euro Cent! Let us know how it's working for you. Will you use it with a Notebook or with a Windows Mobile smartphone too?
BTW: My Slingbox Solo review will follow this week. Just tested it over this weekend (had enough time, thanks to the weather here in Munich (snow and rain)).

I will use it with my notebook, Windows mobile devices and Symbian UI60 smartphone.
I'll let you know how it's working for me when it is arrived and installed.
