    Microsoft Alternitive For ORB/Slingbox!

    I have been wanting a good alternative to slingbox that was as dependable with more quality, and more compatible than ORB (crashes and wont use but a few tuners correctly.) And the high and potent Microsoft will be creating one soon from what I hear. It will unfourtunatley be in MediaCenter and/or VIsta first, then possibly in other O/S Progs.

    The Atricle Is Here: http://www.engadget.com/2006/01/19/microsofts-building-an-orb-slingbox-killer-into-media-center/

    But you have to admit, orb isnt very stable, and the slingbox quality is only good for PPC, I want the scaleibilty of WME for the phone low bandwidth and for the PC high bandwidth.

    I didn't have any problems with Orb till this last version 1.01.0687.

    Slingbox just plain works, tie Slingbox and Gloonet together you pretty much have most of Orb !

    Microsoft will find a way to bleed us with useless upgrades and security patches.
