I know that Sling is much easier to setup and operate. I was curious how the video quality compares to Orb though. I plan on running sling over 3G with voipover3g. How watchable are sports?

THANKS!

it really all depends on your upload bandwidth at your house (or wherever the slingbox is). If it's high enough (above 256 kbps or so), it will look really good on the iPhone.

at work with a decent....not great wifi signal the pic quality on the slingbox was top-notch today! I was watching the Mets game and I could even see clearly the score and count. With a weaker signal Im not so sure
