According to Belkin Mobile TV PC Player – http://www.myvulkano.com/belkin_support.html – 720x480 is the maximum available quality.
Hard to say. That could be some kind of test player program and when the box is released there may be something new.
Going to be fun finding out anyways.
According to Belkin's @TV software for Windows, the maximum streaming resolution is, unfortunately, 720x480, as shown in my screenshot: http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/1795/65371022.png
The maximum bitrate also seems to be 2500 Kbps, as opposed to the Slingbox PRO-HD's 8000~ Kbps.
Is it THAT hard for someone to release a 1080i or even a 720p video streamer?
Belkin @TV Plus new integration! Its all A/V Outputs and A/V Inputs components are promoted and upgraded now though I think now it will be appreciated by all. Thanks!Mark
Since there seems to be a lot of interest in it. Now available for download the user manual for the Belkin @TV Plus.
When can we expect this new Vulkano HD? I'm interest in knowing what Echostar is doing. They should present a new slingbox with wireless, 1080i for remote viewing, recorder and possibility of having more viewers
I see it is now shipping from Amazon.com and a few people have started receiving them. There should be some reviews coming out soon.

I don't have one, but once I saw the pictures of the unit I instantly new it was a Vulkano product as I had seen the old FCC images of the Vulkano v3 product:
So it is cool to know the v3 product wasn't some pipe dream and has actually made it to the market.
What is interesting is that the pictures in this article show it as a the Vulkano Flow, but it includes a HDMI port. So that would make the Belkin @TV Plus a stripped-down version of the Flow (?!?!?) since it lacks an HDMI port.
I have a Vulkano v1 (Pro), and certainly do enjoy it, but am not too hot on the SD resolution (720x480). All the reviews seem to indicate that the @TV does the same junk resolution.
Unfortunately, most reviewers on the internet seem to be treating this as some brand new product, as opposed to what it really is: just a rebranded Vulkano product in a new chassis, which for me is not exciting in the least.
It really bothers me that each new version of the Vulkano seems to bring no new features, or removes features.
V2 (from V1) made the mobile app $12.99 (it was originally free with v1), removed access to the SATA port, removed access to the USB port, removed access to the picture-card port, created a new tier without HDMI port (the Flow).
V3 seems to change nothing from V2 other than putting everything into a new, better looking chassis.
I don't know if they mixed up the pictures of a V3 Flow with a V3 Blast. Hard to tell.
Belkin has done a lot of work on the player programs and guides so even if the hardware doesn't do more maybe the software will work better.

I have both Flow and Lava which I really like and impress with the picture quality, I am kind of disappointed with this release Belkin @TV or V3 as another name of Vulkano.
I wish Vulkano considered adding HD option, even if not HD, they would consider adding a tuner, more inputs so that users can connect multiple devices to it.

I too would have welcomed a second set of component inputs, although, I'm not surprised that an ATSC tuner isn't part of the package. As you can imagine, it keeps the cost down. Secondly, ATSC is not a global standard, so it won't benefit those using it outside of N. America, some parts of Central America and S. Korea.
