After many years with the Slingbox I am about to get Hava..

because Hava
- does not limit you to one client at the time;

- lets you record the shows to the HDD;

- does not charge you for the mobile clients.

What do you think guys?

I dont have a comparison video for you but here are my results.

Using the HAVA with a wireless connection on the local network is so much better than Sling with a wired connection on the local network.

Rating the HAVA with a 10 score the Sling would rate a 7.

I would take it that once the local wire connection is ready for the HAVA it would even better for image quality.

Were the HAVA is lacking is the Remote connection. The image quality is a worse than Sling. If I rate the Sling video and audio as a 10 using a remote connection, the HAVA would be an 8.

Hopefully they can get the remote video and audio working better with future updates.

What I dont like with the composite video connection option is that the set top box only works at 480i resolution.

It would be nice if the HAVA at least worked with 480p. My TV projector setup looks better set at 480p.

HAVA support, will 480p be an option in a future firmware or software update?

Well, I now have a HAVA installed on my LAN.

I also have a slingbox, so I can compare LAN pictures.

HAVA streams - wirelessly - at around 5 to 6 Mbps, Slingbox tops out at 1.9 Mbps over a wired LAN.

HAVA LAN picture quality is outstanding, Slingbox LAN pq is very good.

I have no way, yet, of comparing HAVA and Slingbox remote.



Setup of Slingbox is very easy, setup of HAVA (at least for me) is extremely difficult due to the requirement for wireless connections. However, HAVA tech support personnel are extremely helpful.
