    Isthere a way to stream hdmi from a satellite dish to the apple network so that I can select any apple tv in the house and watch the satellite.

    Another way of asking is that I want to be able watch the output from a single hdmi unit to any of the rooms in the house.

    The short answer would be no.

    There are devices better suited to that task.

    Here's one.

    Very nice product, thanks. It does not let you watch from a TV though, just pc, mac, playbook, ipad etc.

    You could get a sling catcher used.

    It will probably cost you 3-4x more than it cost retail.

    By the way - I assumed that the sling catcher was still available at retail. I guess not. You could use a HTPC of some sort to catch the sling content for your TV.

    Hopefully someone else has a better idea.
