Using Q180 with Sling?

Hi guys I am looking at maybe getting the Q180 to use as a Sling Player.  I have the Sling Adapter for my Dish DVR and would like to watch that video on my bedroom TV and drop the reciever we have there.  Does anyone know if the Q180 will handle a HD stream?  I have a Core 2 Duo 1.8 laptop that handles it pretty well and I had a Core Duo 1.83 that did ok as well, but not sure how the D2700 matches up to the Core 2 Duo processors.  Even if you use a regular Sling and Sling player I would like to know your results.

Re: Using Q180 with Sling?

Using a Q150 to access via the net a Cable STB with a Monsoon Vulkano Platinum (alternative to Sling) attached and streaming flawless 720 video from Dallas (12MB ISP) to Mexico (10MB ISP) . Plus stream video from web TV sites & downloaded movies and it's just like the real deal when I play 'em back. Love the Vulkano and the Q150 combined with the N5902 remote. When I grow up I'm gonna get me a Q180 with the 750GB HD and Blue Ray!
