i shipped my slingbox to my parents house so i could watch chicago sports. they have comcast cable internet (10/2 Mbps) and i usually connect around 1700-1900Kbps on my stream. quality is average at best but it sure beats paying for the mlb or nfl season pass on your cable bill. the only other thing i can think of is stepping up to the slingbox hd if you want better picture quality. it will stream at 1080i where all other slingboxes are stuck streaming VGA quality (640x480). i am looking at this for my next upgrade! good luck.
