Watch and control your home TV and DVR on your iPad!
When connected over 3G or Wi-Fi to a Slingbox SOLO or PRO-HD (Slingboxes sold separately), you can play anything you can see on your home TV on your iPad. View and control video sources such as:
-Cable set-top box and DVR
-Satellite set-top box and DVR
-Telco / IPTV set-top box and DVR
-Digital Over-the-Air broadcasts (Slingbox Pro-HD only)
-Home security cameras
You already pay for great content at home. Why settle for other iPad TV applications that only offer a limited selection of content when you can enjoy everything that's on real TV?

-A Slingbox SOLO or Slingbox PRO-HD is required. The Slingbox PRO, AV, Tuner and Classic will not work at all with SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad.
-Users with the Dish Network 922 Receiver or the Dish Network Sling Adapter should download Dish Remote Access for iPad from the App Store for free. SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is not supported with those devices.
-To stream in High Quality (HQ) mode outside your home, you need at least 1200 kbps of bandwidth from your Slingbox to your iPad when using a Wi-Fi connection, and at least 800 kbps with a 3G connection. To see available bandwidth within SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad, tap the SQ button, then the Aspect button. The current bandwidth displays in the lower left corner. You can test your home upload speed by using a web site such as www.speedtest.net on your home computer; test download speed at your current location by using the free Speedtest iPad app. The total bandwidth available to SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is limited to whichever is smaller: the upload speed, or the current download speed. If you don't have enough bandwidth for HQ mode, you can improve your viewing experience by pressing the SQ button to stream in Standard Quality. At least 500 kbps is required for Standard Quality (SQ) streaming. If you don't have enough bandwidth for Standard Quality mode, then you can try using SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone in Compatibility mode for the best viewing experience on your iPad.
