    TV Reception on Q

    I was wondering, is there anyone who has tried both MobiTv and Slinbox on the Q? Obviously Slingbox will give me more channels but how about reception. I am using MobiTv currently and I notice metallic sounding audio sometimes and a decent amount of re-buffering. Does the Slingbox eliminate these issues or does it freeze/re-buffer as well? Does the slingbox suffer from the computer sounding mettalic sound also? Someone who has tried both would probably best answer my questions but any feedback would be helpful. Thank you.

    Oh yah, one more thing. Can you acess On Demand content from your Time Warner digital cable box with Slingbox?

    my bad dude, yes you would have to have a compatible tv tuner in your PC. i got ahead of myself. that still comes cheaper than buying a slingbox. let me know what you decide and how it works out.

    Update: When I originally posted saying that MobiTv was freezing and re-buffering I was using it at my house where I get avg. 2 evdo bars.(I thought it was no good)
    I drove around today testing it out around the city and anywhere that I had 3 or more evdo bars the picture quality was excellent. Is it the same with slingbox, or will 2 evdo bars be enough to get great reception?
