My DH has the 3gs and wants to save a text from his dear friend who passed 1/2 hour he sent the text. I am so afraid it will get accidentally erased. It is the last little piece of his friend who was tragically killed in a farming accident in August. Is there a way to save it to his itunes?

I'm not sure how to save a text.

He can take an image of it on his iPhone. Press and hold the home button and then off button.

You can copy and paste it and send it in an email.

I'm sorry for his loss.

Yes, but this will only take a pic of that screen, if there are more messages you will have to do this multiple times

Is there any way to watch tv on the iPhone or iPad? got really excited when I saw the Dish app, but that's just to manage my DVR and see the tv schedule. I'd love to be able to watch the news on my lunch break! Any ideas?

You can if you have a Slingbox (www.slingbox.com). While you have to buy the Slingbox, there are no monthly fees. Really cool device. I use mine all the time. They have an app for the iPhone and the Android.

I love my Slingbox. I got to watch the Giant game on Sunday at Saratoga Springs last Sunday. I had to make sure I wouldn't shame myself in EPCOT on Monday while wearing my jersey.

For those of you who have a Slingbox something I've never been able to figure out: Does it take over the TV it's hooked up to when watched from somewhere else? Say DH is watching something on that TV and I want to watch something else from another TV (or my computer or phone) would he still be able to watch what he's watching or would the show I'm watching take over? Am I even making any sense?

Yes, you are making sense.

The answer to your question is no, the Slingbox does not take over the TV that someone may be watching.

There are various models of Slingbox. They all have a built in TV tuner. That means you can watch live TV anywhere you have access to a computer or a smartphone, separate from whatever someone is watching locally.

Other versions of Slingbox can also control a DVR as well as watch live TV. That allows you to watch anything you recorded on the DVR. HOWEVER, if someone is watching something on the DVR, you cannot watch something different. When watching a DVR, you are limited to watching whatever the local person is watching.

Cool thing about Slingbox is that you have complete control of the DVR. That means that if you want to program it to record something that you forgot to do before leaving the house, you can do so remotely.

How cool is that!!

Okay I was following you to this point, lol. We have a dual tuner Tivo-if DH is watching live tv through the cable card in the Tivo is that watching the DVR or is that considered "live" tv?

If it's considered live then I can watch whatever I want from wherever right? If he's watching something recorded then that's what I will be limited to watching. Am I getting this?

Thanks for your help!

I don't have a dual tuner DVR but if you can watch two different shows on the DVR with two different TVs, then you should be able to watch something different on the TV and Slingbox.

Right...you need to think of the slingbox as a TV itself. It takes the output of your tuner (cable box, tivo, whatever) just like a TV would, but instead of showing it on a monitor it transmits it to you. I think there is a model with a built-in tuner, but like a TV that tuner isn't terribly useful if you have cable/satellite where you need a separate tuner. So basically, you can watch whatever the cable box/tivo outputs, which even in dual-tuner units can only output one thing at a time.

I think I'm starting to understand this! If I want the Slingbox that I can watch the Recorded show on DVR, can I get the Solo model, or will I have to go with the HD model?

The Solo is fine if you don't need HD (and I think HD can be a bit much to push over the Internet, but I haven't seen the HD model in action) and only need to control the one DVR. The HD unit can have multiple inputs, such as a DVR, cable box and a DVD player.
