    While I haven't yet played with the Slingbox app enough to verify this, I suspect that video streaming via ANY app is going to be a VERY battery intensive process. Up until you started watching World Cup, your battery usage could be considered relatively normal, depending on what you have running in your setup.

    If you're rooted, there's an app called juice defender that may help. I'm not rooted but others in this forum have said it helped. But you're battery shouldn't drain from 94% to 71% that fast. Could be a bad battery.

    Think about it...if display is your largest battery hog, and you're using your phone to watch TV (which needs the display by definition); then you're going to be putting a serious load on your battery. As to the other aspects that could be contributing, if you run WiFi, BlueTooth, GPS, and perhaps some other continuously running background apps all the time, they will also put a load on the battery. BTW, I'd think that Slingbox and TVcatchup use similar amounts of battery, as they both stream video. I can't, of course, confirm that however.

    Please understand, I'm not suggesting that there's nothing wrong with your battery; just that there may be more to your issue than you may realize.

    understand everything you say mate but the world cup game started at 15:00 and i only managed 15 mins of it so basically my battery lasts8/9 hours with little use and defo no gps bluetooth or wifi on, i will wait and check it for the next few days and it looks like i'm buying a new battery or using my nokia 6230i for work

    check all the apps that need internet connections. The apps such as email pushing, weather, news, twitter, instant messengers etc all need internet connection and those apps can consume a lot of battery by using 3g connection frequently. So if any of your apps need a constant internet connection like a messenger then it will drain the battery like no other. And 15min of video streaming via 3g def hurt the battery. I never tested on N1 but my other phones with siimilar battery capacity only lasted 1 hr and 25min streaming video via 3g.
