Excerpt: Like the Slingbox, Sony’s LocationFree LF-V30 streams A/V to any computer at home or abroad, because there’s plenty of good TV during work hours. Setting up the LF-V30 is fairly straight-forward, as the on-screen guide had plenty of pictures and large text to keep us on track.
Pros: Three video input types (composite, component, and S-video) insures compatibility to most cable/satellite boxes, DVRs, and DVD players. Wired and wireless connectivity.
Cons: Downreszing HD to SD is just cruel, even if remote viewing is cool. And unless you’re on a fairly beefy computer, your viewing experience may be replete with stuttering video.
