Slingbox Personal Broadcaster

I've been following this story for quite some time. What I don't get is HOW it timeshifts TV and from what? Just the signal? Do I just need to give it a feed? What is sending what? I've even gone to their site every week to see if I get it and I just don't. Maybe after it ships and we get some real reviews and not marketing speak I will finally GET IT. :-)

"The Slingbox definitely features a unique product design with literal written its features on top of the casing. Additionally the box looks like a piece of chocolate. The promise of the Slingbox is to redirect, or "placeshift,? the TV signal from any cable box, satellite receiver, or personal video recorder to a viewer's location and device of choice“ whether in another room in the home or anywhere in the world with a high-speed Internet connection."

That helps a ton and makes much more sense.

Slingbox can FORWARD your television signal from your home cable box (digital or analog), your satellite receiver, antenna, or even your Tivo to your desktop or notebook PC. So, in other words, you could watch your local news/sports in a another city....anywhere in the world! The PC does not need a TV tuner card or other hardware. Instead, you install software (included with the Slingbox) on the PC that lets you view and select television content. Lastly, there are no monthly fees!

Hope that helps!
