    Hallo Apple fans,

    First i would like to say hallo to all of Apple fans. I visit macrumors daily and find it one of the best Apple sites there is.

    For my question:
    I have a slingbox abroad witch is connected to a cabel decoder in israel. hier in the NL i have a apple tv2.
    Can i watch the content direct on my tv (with the help of the apple tv) or its just dont work?
    until now i can only watch the slingbox solo on my computer,but it would be better if i can watch it on my tv.

    Please help.

    Chim :)

    A standard ATV2 wont connect directly but there are a few ways that you may be able to get the stream:
    - If you have an iphone/ios device use the Sling player app and air play
    - If you have a mac that can air play, then stream to the mac and air play to the ATV

    You can install XBMC and I know that XBMC does support this when running under Windows. However I don't think it works when running on an Apple TV. You would have to have a look around the XBMC forums.
