J&R offers the Sling Media Slingbox SOLO Television Broadcaster, model no. SB260-100, for $148. Coupon code “JRGOOG” cuts it to $138. With free shipping, that’s the lowest total price we could find by $32, although we saw it for $7 less in July. It lets you watch TV (from your TiVo, cable box, etc.) on any networked computer anywhere in the world. It features HD support up to 1080i, Ethernet connectivity, and component, S-Video, and RCA inputs and outputs. Unlike the pricier Slingbox PRO, the SOLO has no HDMI input and only a single input/output pair for audio.
