    Could you watch it if it was jailbroken?
    My old iPhone was jailbroken and couldn't find any liveTV apps

    Not at the moment.
    But apparently SlingBox is in the works with something like that.
    We'll seeee.

    I just assumed that if there was a way, then you could do it with a jailbroken phone. But I guess not.

    it'd be nice if eyeTV would do something to stream live or semi-buffered video to the iPhone. I know you can stream your recorded videos. Really hoping something comes out for this before football season!

    I am not sure about Jailbroken 2.0, but there was a program called ORB for 1.1.4 that allowed you to do it if you jailbroke. You need a computer with a TV tuner card hooked up to the internet. You then register at ORB's site and it basically becomes a slingbox with many more features. In fact, I'm returning my slingbox because this program does the same thing plus much much more. Google ORB.

    Yea, here's the website.

    I would think that they would now want to release an app to the Apple store now that 2.0 is out now. Hopefully they will in the future.

    Don't you need Windows to use Orb?
    I thought I read that somewhere...

    I think you might, however on another note, I just emailed the vice president of Orb and asked if they are working on any apps for the Apple store for the iphone and said that they were, stay tuned...
