    There is suprisingly little discussion on here re: ATV2 and Slingbox. I expect this is because there is no current ability to access a Slingbox via the atv2 (I'm just getting ATV for Christmas)?

    Seems like a perfect/natural complimenting solution. I'd love to be able to pack up my ATV and take it on vacation with me, connect it to the tv and be up and running.

    Is it most peoples assumption that a future iOS update will enable the ability to run apps like Slingplayer?

    Is anyone aware of any current workarounds?

    Are you trying to get them to play music at the same time?

    I just ordered a SlingBox and would love this feature. I would buy an ATV for every TV in my house if this was available. As you know there are SlingPlayer Apps for iPhone and iPad ($30 each). We may have to wait for app store for ATV.

    Newegg has a deal on the Solo for $138+ free shipping. Here's the link:

    I picked one up last night. I've already got the Pro-HD and use it with my iPhone and iPad - but it's hooked up to my Dish Sat box- w/o DVR. I got the second one to use with my TWC DVR box.
