Vulkano Flow: A Capable Sub-$100 HDTV Place-Shifter With Direct-to-Mobile Recording, Too

 

If you've ever spent any time channel surfing in a hotel room, chances are you'll immediately see the appeal of place-shifting technology, which allows you to watch your home TV programs remotely by streaming them over the Internet to a PC, Mac, or...

Installation is as easy as installing your cable box. Configuration is another story. You can download their install guide before buying if needed. For most users it’ll be a simple and easy configuration as Vulkano tried to automate every step to...

Upon hookup the PC software couldn’t find my Vulkano Flo despite the fact that I was able to ping it. Simple reboot of the device fixed it. I wanted to be able to hit my FIOS 35/35 static IP for watching streaming but have to utilize a Vulkano account...

Monsoon Vulkano Flow

 

Looks slick

Regardless of what it says on the box, after HOURS of troubleshooting with overseas tech support (not always very easy to understand...), and a week later, I finally got out of them that the device OS does not play nicely with Mac OS X 10.7.3 AND they...
