A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a Slingbox and had it delivered to my parents’ house. It’s a gadget that you connect to a television or other video gadget which then allows you to watch and control that television or gadget over the internet. The idea is that I can use it to watch television and possibly connect it to a DVR if it works well. Getting it all set up proved to be more challenging than initially expected, and thankfully my mother was very patient, but between the two of us we finally got it set up so that I can now watch local cable from home on my computer while I’m here in Mexico. Hopefully, this will help keep me entertained, since entertainment options here are somewhat limited. Also, when I go somewhere further away, where UT football games aren’t broadcast, I’ll have a way to watch them online. 🙂 Hook ’em Slingbox!
