    Hi,
    real time scale down live TV to be able to view your own live TV on the road. Look for slingbox if you want to know what is possible.

    No. You don't need a sling box. E.g. Vu+Duo2 has Transcoding. You can log onto your box and watch from any device.
    Transcoding is the ability to adapt digital files so that content can be viewed on different playback devices. Working like an interpreter, a transcoder translates files to a suitable format for the end user.
    If you are going to view your box whilst away from home make sure you have a secure connection.

    Hi,
    Solo2 also has transcoding features but Duo2 is far better.

    Thanks Trial for correcting me.
    Sorry about that. Yes the solo has transcoding for mobile devices. The duo is the full Hd transcoding.

    No mate, the Solo2 has HD transcoding also.
    Solo2 = Software transcoding.
    Duo2 = Hardware Transcoding.
    Obviously Hardware is going to be more stable and reliable and not cause issues when someone else is watching the box.
