Slingbox Recorder and Viewer Applications
SLR is a simple application designed to record and, together with the VSLR application, view Slingbox video streams on one or more computers.
Slinger SLR can be used to save Slingbox streams as files for later offline viewing on your PC, iPod or DVD Player.
The Slinger Viewer offers PVR features such as pause, commercial skip, and resume for multiple simultaneous viewers.

The trial versions of SLR and VSLR can be downloaded free of charge:

If you have tried the program and you like it, you can buy it now for $24.95.
The VSLR viewer application requires the installation of the free VLC package version 0.8.6i. You must install VLC 0.8.6i before running the VSLR viewer. See the important installation notes below.
The SLR recorder works without the viewer. It is an optional extra. You can view recorded files in Windows Media Player and most other video players and editors.
VLC 0.8.6i Installation Notes:
If you already have a later version of VLC, such as the current VLC 1 Goldeneye Media Player, it will not be affected if you follow the custom installation instructions below.
Run the installation application that was downloaded (vlc-0.8.6i.exe). Follow these instructions carefully:
