Can More Than One Computer Watch a Slingbox

I am thinking about getting a slingbox...

If I get one, can it be watched by more than one individual simultaneously?


also, does it take control of the cable box or can people in the house watch something different than the person watching via computer?...

No it logs the first person out when the second person logs in and if someone is watching tv at home then it changes the channel on them as well because it does take over the cable box at your house. You are literally controlling your cable box from your computer with a sling box.

Yes. If one person is watching and another logs on, it logs back to the first person if the second changes the channel and may log out or relog the first person if the second person first changes the channel of the second user to log on.

we have 3 boxes through Microsoft Mediaroom IPTV. The third box is our dedicated Slingbox/WinTV box (its hooked to a media center computer and we are able to store anything we want long time and then burn it on Blu Ray)

I'm not really sure many people would or could understand you, but even reading through your answer I believe you are wrong. The short answer is two people may not be logged onto sling.com at the same time. If you log on from a different computer it logs the person who was originally on out.

it was a bit convoluted with all of the log in and log out stuff, but considering that I have no knowledge at all otherwise, yes...I appreciate your taking the time to reply...

I appreciate that.

I don't know what a Slingbox is. I just made up some convoluted shite to see what would happen. Thanks for playing!
