Only one user can access a single Slingbox™ at a time. Accessing content using a Slingbox™ is known as placeshifting.
A Slingbox™ connects a TV source (via coaxial cable, composite cables, component cables, or an S-video cable) to an existing Internet connection. Users can change channels from a remote location.
Slingplayer software on a user's computer connects to the Slingbox™ over the Internet and provides the user interface for viewing the video stream and changing channels.
A virtual remote controls all connected devices and changes the channels with the use of the computer mouse.
