At CES - Stuff I Want!
TechDadCentral was at CES over the weekend and saw many items in the, "I want this!" category. Over the next few days, I'll post about the stuff that I want.
To get started, I want the DISH Network ViP 922 satellite receiver due out later this year. It includes:
- A DVR with 1 TB of storage space
- A pair of tuners in one receiver
- Built in Slingbox capability
The Terabyte of storage means that even my teenage son can't fill it up by saving every episode of Scrubs in HD. The pair of tuners allows me to drive two TVs with two separate remotes - one upstairs and own downstairs - via a single receiver. Connected to my Ethernet, the ViP 922 has a built-in Slingbox so that I can watch my home service in HD on my laptop wherever I go. Big money saver as I don't need to rent a second receiver for upstairs or upgrade my Slingbox to HD.
FYI - Viewing your Slingbox in a browser (as opposed to downloading the 250 MB Slingplayer application) is also coming this year.
