    wait, now everyone. i whole heartedly agreewith toobad4droid. when the droid came out, it promised a lot of things, all you have to do is look at the website. remember.

    and then when i woke up christmas morning seeing my droid still on the dock and not cooking me breakfast, that was my breaking point. the nerve that my droid is incapable of such basic tasks! Monday, it goes back.

    I've had mine 2 months or so and have been watching and waiting for it to transform into a robot or something. If this bad boy doesn't hurry up and do something, well. LOL

    Flash Player = Slingbox capability?

    I'm a slingbox user and my wife and I both have droids. We are looking forward to having the capability of linking to our home Tivo network via slingbox (which includes our Netflix online account, media server, pics, music, cable TV, etc.). By no means is this a droid dealbreaker for me though (I'm coming from a flip phone!)

    My thought is, that the slingbox.com web interface will work once a flash player is released for the android OS (which adobe has stated will happen Q1 of 2010). Rather than waiting for a droid application, I'm under the impression the slingbox site will work once this rolls out.

    Am I off base?

    You need a Droid compatible application to run on the phone in order to connect to the slingbox and control it.

    The op might be a troll but why have a freaking meltdown over someone not digging your new toy? The slingbox isn't for everyone but if you live half your life on the road it's awesome, and let's face it, we're waiting for the Droid to do TV. Tv.com is a joke. Youtube works ok in low-def but when you bump it up to hi-def it freezes repeatedly.

    The beauty of the Slingbox is that it ties into your DVR meaning that you can d/l all your favorite shows and watch them from anywhere. You can even program it from on the road.

    No I'm not returning my Droid, but I do want Slingbox (or at least FLASH FOR ANDROID!!!).

    It is not about the Slingbox. Nobody is knocking Slingbox. Sure for those that use it, it would be cool if there is an app. But from him user name on down, he is a troll. You come into a forum for people that like a product and go and bash it... for what? It is not like it is a "surprise" that Slingbox hasn't released a client for it yet. And if that is the sole reason you do or don't buy a specific phone... rather than a phone, I think a life is needed to acquired.

    I'm not doubting you, but please elaborate. I can hit my sling boxes with my computer browser with only flash installed. (I'm not running any other program.. plus the tivo remote is available.) I've done this on several other computers with only a browser. Why wouldn't it be the same using the browser on the phone with flash? What is missing?
