The hardware: Dish DuoDVR SlingLoaded ViP922

Built by EchoStar, the Dish DuoDVR SlingLoaded ViP922 is a lot like earlier Dish Network DVRs such as the ViP622 or ViP722--but it's also got a built-in Slingbox that can transmit its programming to other PCs or smartphones, either within the home or anywhere in the world where you can access a broadband Internet connection.
