I would assume if you programmed a channel changing script to talk to it
(it appears to run android), you could use the MythTV streaming recorder to
record them as tuners.  I do not have one to play with, but it seems there
is a lot of info out there to use them without Sling.  There must be an API
that Sling uses to talk to them and figuring it out with packet captures
should be fairly simple I would guess (guess the main word here!).
