      temporary laptop viewing

      Hi everyone. Any advice on the simplest way to watch sky on my laptop temporarily? My tv is being repaired and it could be days before I get it, and my miserably tiny 40G sky+ drive will fill up in no time. I've heard of either a slingbox or tv card as options, not sure which is easier and cheaper to set up, and more importantly if they can be set up without a tv.

      Was also thinking of upgrading the hard drive but as I'm not that savvy in these things was considering buying a box with a bigger hard drive (ebay?), watching everything and swapping the card before selling the old box! Or do people who have used the copy software recommend it?

      Thanks!

      I have an HMDI plug on my laptop, if that makes a difference
