Slingbox gets new siblings

Sling Media, maker of the placeshifting Slingbox device, on Wednesday released three new gadgets for watching TV remotely: the Slingbox Pro, Slingbox AV and Slingbox Tuner. Each product targets a different segment of the TV-watching market–home-theater enthusiasts; DVR or cable set-top box owners; and basic-cable subscribers.

I know I just posted about these yesterday, but it looks like they officially launched today. Dave Zatz has had one to play with for a while. He reports that the major changes are higher resolution (640×480) and higher bitrates (up to 8000Kbps). MacOS support is in beta and should release in the next 30 days, with Symbian support coming later this fall.

Now, where is that PalmOS support? How about the long rumored Sling Catcher?
