Almost a year after catching wind of the SlingCatcher, The Tomo Report claims to have laid its on hands on pictures of the final packaging, which happens to splay the device's specs. According to the box, it'll require an HDTV, along with a USB 2.0 HDD or memory stick if you want to use SlingSync. It supports a ridiculous number of formats: WMV, MPEG- 2, MPEG-4, H.264 and Xvid for video, and MP2, MP3, WMA, AAC, AC3 and PCM for audio, plus a number of containers. Naturally, the close-up showing the specs is blurry, the first sign of a fake, so take this with some Morton table salt. Peep the other two shots post-jump.

DISCUSSION

I'm looking forward to seeing this at CES. I first heard about it at last year's event, but maybe now they'll have the real thing.

I don't understand the comment about it requiring an HDTV, however, when the pic shows component, composite, s-video, and HDMI output, fake or not.
