I just borrowed my friend’s Slingbox and tried its SlingPlayer for Mac, the performance is pleasing. You won’t have problem to get default smooth 320×240 video and great audio using broadband speed more than 300kps (My friend tried to connect to his Slingbox located in HK from US through 300kbp connection, and I tried with 500kps from a cafe in HK). If you don’t mind to scarify smoothness or allow a little bumping of voice, you can try 640×480, I guess if you connection can achieve around 700kps, it should be good for that.

剛替一位住美國的香港朋友買了一台,現在他可以身處美國收看香港的電視節目,十分方便實用!
等他安裝好,讓我試一下Mac版的效果怎樣。 🙂

HK$1380另送 Sling Player for Pocket PC (原價US$29.9), 超值!

認識我的人都知道我不愛回家,背著電腦到處留情是家常便飯的事。
剛巧大學給大學生和員工非常好的福利(可能只有我一個會認為…),可以免費用PCCW或者Y5ZONE的熱點用流動無線寬頻上網。
不過我曾經嘗試過數次,Mac是行不通的,因為要用些很複雜而只有Windows才會有的WiFi設定(Mac is too simple?)。
我一直都很失望…
直到今天,其實我本來已經付錢買了一天通行証,才知道現在PCCW可以容許網上登入,不用再試那複雜的WiFi設定!Yeah!

也許我以後更少回家了… 😛
