Monsoon Vulkano Flow review

 

Slingbox has owned the video placeshifting market for the past five years, to the extent that such an act has been coined as "slinging" content. To the company's credit, there has been a steady amount of copycats to come and go, but the Vulkano Flow is...

The Vulkano Flow enables users to watch their home cable or satellite service over the Internet from anywhere on almost any computer or mobile platform. It also allows users to record content directly to a computer. It supports PC, Mac, iOS, Android,...

The Vulkano Flow provides no Web site access functionality unlike Sling. The Electronic Programming Guide isn't always reliable and we had the beta Mac version of the system's player crash on us a few times. We also wish it had HDMI ports and an...

While the experience isn't as polished as the Slingbox, the Vulkano Flow offers an impressive amount of streaming and recording features at an unbeatable price point.

"Good value if you are looking for a placeshifter."

 

I purchased this product in order to be able to watch TV at tailgates without having to spring for a satellite dish. I just set up my phone as a hotspot and use the computer to feed it to the TV. I have yet to have any issues with connecting to the...

A great value. Compared to Slingplayers, it was less than half the price when I bought it. Works just fine on my HTC Thunderbolt 4G connection. Android app is a one-time $12, which I don't believe to be excessive. Easy enough set up.

When I use this on another TV in my house, I can't ever get the resolution to fill the screen. A bit clunky on the interface and not the more polished smartphone app. No HDMI input.

"This is one of the worst products I have ever owned."

 

It is obvious the support is off shore in a barely American English speaking country. The product was not very difficult to set up, but was difficult to operate. I was never able to get the unit to record a program, I watch TV on my computer once while...

If it did work, the features would be great. Key is if it worked. Since I purchased the unit, it has not worked at all.

Customer support is terrible. I have tried literally for months to get a hold of someone. They answer and the call drops. The unit stoppe working only a month after purchase and cannot get any support to help get it to work.
