Echostar is a new name to PC Advisor, but at least part of the concept is familiar: it’s a media-streaming box that uses the same technology found in Slingbox ‘location-shifting’ devices. This allows you to pull up content stored on your home PC or PVR and to play it on a laptop or PC in any room or even another city. The Echostar HDR-600S is essentially a refined version of the Slingbox HD. Both sport a Freesat TV tuner. Echostar bought Slingbox UK from maker Sling Media.
