I run mine with Time Warner but I dont have a DVR box...this will probably only work with DISH DVR...tho I never tried when I had a TW DVR

So - quick question: does this require the actual slingbox as well?

Detailed instructions to make SlingPlayer work on 3G
I have just downloaded the new SlingPlayer for iPhone, and it is running perfectly. And - I also have it working exceptionally on 3G. Even as I write this post, I am watching an HD program, streaming quite well, with wifi completely turned off on my iPhone. Just to make sure that there was no glitch, I walked outside and a few blocks away, and was still streaming successfully on nothing more than a 3G connection.
Here is a detailed step by step process on how to do it -
- First, obviously, download and install SlingPlayer, and make sure that everything is working fine with it while you are on your wifi network.
- Then, open Cydia, and download and install the free program VoIPover3g.
- SSH into your iPhone, and navigate to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries.
- Copy/move the file VoIPover3G.plist to your desktop so you can open and edit it.
- In your copied plist, add this listing - com.slingmedia.SlingPlayer . Be sure you add it so that it is done in the exact same way as the other entries already there. Then save and close the plist file.
- Back in your iPhone, rename the original VoIPover3G.plist to some other name so you still have a copy of it. I named mine VoIPover3G.plist.original
- Move your edited copy of the plist file back onto your iPhone into the same directory. Then, reboot your iphone.
When you are done, your SlingPlayer will work on 3G as well as it does on wifi.

i just got it and i can verify that yes it DOES WORK with the older slingbox av. after signing into my account and attempting to connect it said my model slingbox was not suppoerted but may still stream and 2 seconds later im in slingbox heaven. overall feel of the app and controls are fresh. using the app is simple just as it should be ive already watched some of my dvr recordings without issue.

Here is an edited copy of VoIPover3G.plist that you can use, if you don't want to edit one yourself. This will allow SlingPlayer to work on 3G. Just replace the one in /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries with this one. (Don't forget to upzip this file, and use the plist inside the zipped file)

It also controls your box...If you change the channel on your slingplayer mobile,it changes the channel on your box as well.So if someone is watching the TV thats got the Sling attached...they are going to be in for a surprise if you are watching and you change the channel :P

I was considering buying the SlingBox Pro HD but this announcement has swayed me from the purchase due to the 3G restriction for iPhone 3G users. It can barely be considered mobile TV when you are forced to be in a WIFI zone to access the TV channels. Also I dislike that SlingMedia expects their customers to fork over another $29.99 CAD to get SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone 3G after already spending $379.99 CAD for the SlingBox. To entice more customers to buy their products SlingMedia shouldn’t be charging for SlingPlayer Mobile and they should be fare in allowing all SlingPlayer Mobile apps to access 3G, not just Windows Mobile, Blackberry OS, Palm OS and Symbian OS.

I tried downloading it from the appstore but it says "Not compatible with this iphone." Why???? I'm on 2.1 firmware, is this the problem?
Is anybody with 2.1 firmware able to download this app?

Orb Live requires a tv tuner and leave computer on to use it. Orb can also stream your music and movie files stored on your pc and you can also access your media from another PC. SlingPlayer doesn't use your computer but requires a SlingBox(multiple models) and an internet connection to work. You can then connect and control your cable setop box, Tivo, satelite box etc. with the ability to use remote control options like up, down, left, right(useful for i.e. "on demand" cable menus).
