Wartrace, guessing you are hooking your PC to your television now to watch it using HDMi ports? Doubt I'd want to watch something on my laptop or PC, but I do use my laptop once in awhile to watch dvd's on tv using the HDMI ports.

Yes, I ran an HDMI from my PC to the TV set. I have it set on the lowest bandwidth setting (500kbps) and it doesn't look too bad. I do have a 30 inch PC monitor but I recently purchased a 70" television and want to watch on that.

One little problem I have noticed is that after an hour or so the voice gets out of synch with picture. I have to change channels and go back to reset it.

I love SlingTV! There are issues with it, yes, but for $20 a month, I can't complain. Having ESPN & ESPN 2 means a lot to me. Down the road, I might upgrade to the sports package for $5 more, but right now, it serves its purpose. Sure, the lack of OnDemand sucks, but it's not a biggy. With Neftlix, Sling, and several channels OTA, I'm very satisfied with paying $28 a month compared to the $112 a month I was paying DirecTV.
