Summary: I use this device to stream tv to my laptop and psp. I was able to set it up without too much trouble. It's great to be able to stream to my psp and take it anywhere in the house--like in the bathroom while I get ready in the morning. That said, I have never been able to get the remote to work with my Dish Network. I have spent considerable time trying to figure this out.
Summary: I don't really own one, so I am entering as 3 stars. Just a warning that despite the specifications, Sony does not officially support Mac compatibility. In order to get this to work on a Mac requires third party software...that you can't buy anymore. Even if you could buy the software, it costs $40 per computer to install, so I am going to have to go with a Slingbox.
