    I was googling for this solution exactly! Slingmedia stopped making the Slingcatcher (lets you watch slingbox output on your TV, rather than your pc or phone). Apparently the company was sold to one of the Sat TV companies and they decided to kill it.

    It would be a huge moneymaker if someone were to create a jailbreak app for AppleTV2 that let users connect to slingbox output. (2nd hand slingcatchers are now going for over $300) It's all streaming content, so it would seem to be a natural fit for the AppleTV.

    Please, please, please someone develop this app.
