At home for review: SlingCatcher
Finally got my review unit today (didn't it start shipping more than a month ago?) and looking forward to giving it the once-over. For those who aren't familiar with all things Sling, the SlingCatcher grabs video from either remote Slingboxes or your PC (via the new SlingProjector app) and slings them onto your TV. So, for example, you could sling video from a Slingbox in one room your living room to a SlingCatcher-connected HDTV in the bedroom, or you could set SlingProjector to send a YouTube or Hulu Web video (or anything on your browser, for that matter) to your TV set. Hoping to get the review up next week, so stay tuned.
