Re: Nebula DigiTV doesn't appear to do a lot of what Sling does
Ok, so I had trouble finding details on the Nebula DigiTV product. Is it available in the US? Their website appears to be here: http://nebula-electronics.com/ Although it also appears to be down.
It also doesn't look like it supports mobile players like Sling does, so no watching from your cell phone. Sling supports Blackberries, Windows Mobile, and I believe the latest Palm OS. Granted their player is proprietary, but at least it works. If Nebula DigiTV only works via the web, it probably doesn't work on your phone which is how everyone I know who owns a Sling device uses them.
Also without finding specs, I couldn't verify but the PCI version and the USB version both appear to be Windows only, unlike Sling.
So it would appear to fall short on several features vs. the sling. I would be interested to see if it streams in full HD as you imply across the network, from say the output of an HD-DVD or BluRay player. If so it would have a nice advantage over the Sling product. Otherwise it sounds like either you don't understand Sling, or you are just plugging an inferior product that is lacking a lot of features.
