Orb takes the home out of home entertainment

Why wait for a dedicated device like Slingbox when you can have ORB now. Download some shows - get some pictures - send it anywhere you want. Okay - I know they are indeed different but you can get ORB now - and I think in the long run -you'll want both. Too bad it's only for XP - but at least it suports both Media center and regular flavors of Win XP. I hate the stuff that is only for Media center.

"Orb TV can offer you live and recorded TV, Internet TV, and access to webcams from virtually any of your Internet-connected devices. "


"Orb gives you secure access to the digital media on your home PC through a simple web interface. Orb streams your content safely to virtually any internet-connected device. Just install the Orb software on your PC, then access your media anywhere."

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."
