Do you still have to pay an arm and a leg for the apps?
The reason I returned my Slingbox was because the quality was pretty bad on Android, and the apps cost a ridiculous $30. That's $30 for the phone version of the app and another $30 for the tablet version. Despite no UI difference in the apps, they still made you pay again for a tablet version, which was ridiculous.
Still, I paid it, and would have lived with the cost if the apps had worked well. The audio was AWFUL on my Android devices, and the performance of the product in general was pretty bad.
