SlingCatcher delayed – possibly until late this year

There was a gentleman who informed Engadget of a notice he received from SlingMedia informing him that the SlingCatcher was not up to Sling Media’s standards.

Slingbox Pro HD to stream 1080i video come August

Poor Gizmodo – they managed to get their hands on one of Slingbox’s new Pro HD media shifters, but didn’t get to actually plug it in and watch the high-def 1080i streamed video in action.  Still, they’ve got some nice photos of the familiar arch shape, and the bristling input/output panel at the rear, and were able to tell us that the black casing looks better than earlier models.

Sony LF-V30 LocationFree Base Station is no SlingBox killer

Sure, Sony was first to market with a place-shifting television technology, but SlingBox did it better. And still do.

Even with the release of this latest piece of hardware Sony can only best the latest SlingBox Pro in a few areas. But if you already have a LocationFree based network, or you plan on adding some of the nicer bits of hardware from Sony’s line to your home theater, this isn’t a bad choice.

Pics of the new Slingbox courtesy of the FCC

You have to love the people out there that scour the FCC’s site in hopes of finding that nugget of joy in the form of an unannounced product. The latest discovery shows us the forthcoming third-generation Slingbox.

The device will have built-in component video inputs which will save you $50 on an accessory that would do the same. We also see either an analog cable tuner and/or an ATSC tuner as well.
