    Using a slingbox with MiFi

    timjet

      Has anyone done this? I have directv at my house and would like to view recorded content on my boat. I'm considering using my jetback 4620L to receive the data from slingbox on my boat.

      Thanks,

      Tim

          I have no experience with a Slingbox, but I'll try to answer your question.

           

          If your Slingbox can connect to the internet while it is at home then you *Should* be able to access it from your boat while on your MiFi.  The big catch here is if Slingbox provides a cloud based service or if it requires you to log directly into it from an public IP Address.  A cloud type service is more likely to work than something that requires a direct connection over IP.

           

          I'd check with the Slingbox support forums for more info.  Your MiFi is not going to need any additional configuration.  Its either going to work or its not.
