I installed a Solo on my bedroom DirecTV HD DVR (HR22-100), allows me to watch TV on my home office computer, was able to get rid of a receiver.
Just keep in mind that the Slingbox SHARES programming, the remote and local viewers must watch the same thing.

slingboxes are great, completely changed the way I pay for and watch cable tv.
If a family member or gf/bf etc wants to watch cable but doesn't want to pay ~$60/month for service, rent an extra box (~$10/month), and let them use it over slingbox. The extra cable box doesnt even have to connected to a tv, just stash the cable box and slingbox in the closet!
