    Streaming from home

    Have you guys found a way to stream off of your home computer when not at home. I thought splashtop was going to be the answer but it failed to deliver. It's great for just typical remote desktop type stuff but video is sloooow. Any ideas?

    There is also PlayOn TV which also requires a server on your PC and an app for the tablet.

    The biggest bottle neck for any home streaming solution is going to be your internet upload bandwidth. If you have less than 5 Mbps upload, you will have trouble streaming just about any video from home.

    I only have a 1.5 Mbps upload (best I can get right now) so I know I cannot stream video.

    Your modem from home has to be set and configured to do that. I dont know how my son did it for me and it works great

    Actually Fred.. I have 628K up and I am still able to stream video. It is NOT the best quality but it works just fine. I can watch my Slingbox anytime I wish.

    The Slingbox app looks great even at this streaming level. It is not going to win awards but it works

    I also stream from my Windows Home Server 2011 and it is quite decent as well. I can not stream video from it to the Tablet yet as the WHS Phone app does not support 2011 version. But streaming to my work computer is very decent.

    Some don't have the best settings. If you see something about WMM or enabling WiFi Multimedia Services or MM QoS or similar, that would be the best bet both up and down.

    I dunno what my Upload is but I have FiOS and I can stream up to 720p fine 1080p takes abit to buffer. Also tested skifta on basic comcast as well and have no issues

    FIOS is typically 5-10 Mbps upload. I am quite jealous.
