Slinging NBA, MLB and NFL packages Will I be able to sling sports packages from a Direct TV site to my computer and/or Comcast setup? What will I need and how should I set it up? Thx.

Yes it will. All it does is use software to take the interface from your direcTV box and put it on your computer. So you would just need to go to channel 700 for example to watch the NFL ticket. Nothing special, super easy. I've been a slingbox user for years. My parents don't have the ticket, so i take my laptop home with me, hook the computer into my dad's tv using a usb cord, then watch the games on my dad's samsung lcd. Not a perfect picture, but it does the trick.

Yes, if the STB/Slingbox connection is A/V cables, but not if you are relying on HDMI between the two. Some channels are blocked unless it is direct from the STB to the TV.
