I perchasded a slingbox many years ago and change dit for a 500 too years ago. Î use dit for Florida and Bahamas, it works perfectly. Il needs the very hight speed and suggest to connect with a netwok câble to the rooter.
Avec plus de 3 semaines d'utilisations je vous confirme que ce produit fonctionne très bien et il y a un seul héritant les annonces sur l’écran. Job well done…
I used last month my Slingbox 500 in Mexico and the screen of the TV as green.why?
Check their online forums. https://community.slingbox.com/message/172232?et=watches.email.thread#172232 They pushed a firmware update down to every's slingbox that has broken multiple models. The desktop app no long fworks with 500's, 350's possibly others. The web app is flakey. And despite hundreds of customers posting complaints in the Slingbox forums they have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to fix it. They are ignoring their customers who are having problems.
So I heard about this gadget and I thought it would be perfect for me. I travel a lot and the idea of being able to watch my recorded shows anywhere there is wifi sounded great.
First off, they do not tell you that there is copyright law that most cable boxes will not let this technology work. The way around it is to hook up using red green blue wiring. My first question then is why even offer a hi def option? If you do want to try and make this work, don't buy the expensive model, buy the entry level option for less then half the price.
Got it home, used the easy set up and could not get anything on the screen. NOWHERE on the slingbox website can you find the customer service number. I ended up finding it on another website. Called and after 55 min of being on hold I finally got to talk with someone. That was an hour I will never get back.
She basically walked me through everything I had already done. Nothing changed. So I was told I could go out and buy an HDMI splitter or only use RGB and then it MIGHT work. At this point I would have to remove my tv from the wall!
Best Buy should not be selling this product here in our area because it will not work with the cable provider. No one in the store was able to offer any help with this product or advice.
You are better off buying an otterbox to stream. Plus they are way less expensive.
Great product and works perfectly. Need to setup for some remote controller setting file if placing this Sling box in Asia, but works perfectly after setting everything up.
I bought Slingbox 500 and I am very satisfied. Few years ago, I bought Slingbox Solo and I liked it.
What a great device. I now control my Bell expressvu STB PVR in Toronto from anywhere in the world. It was very easy to set-up and came with all the cables. The Sling smartphone app UI took some getting used to, but works well on my LG. I prefer the PC interface (and larger screen). One client at a time.
Good results obviously depend on internet speed for both connections (upload) on the head end and download speed on the client side - but if all is to Sling recommendations, works really well. I found the criticisms about ads on the free Apps overstated. Can always purchase the app to eliminate the minor start-up distraction altogether.
I highly recommend this product.
Easy to install and works great.
I've bought it for its HDMI input but it didn't accept the DVD player's signal nor the set top box's. So, why should I've kept it ([price]) when the 350 model was just [price]? Almost double price for an illusion? Yes, I know, there is the wi-fi - (nice feature, by the way) but the most important are the image/sound quality and the streaming stability and of course the general long term reliability. I"ve returned it and took a 350. The components won't cause any trouble, for sure. I've been having an ol' time PRO HD for a few years and I wouldn't trade it for any of the new models... Wired network connection, easily configurable through the Internet, can be used with the legacy stand-alone player 2.0 , no streaming issues, installed "on the other side of the world. Is just that a friend of mine needs one, too and the PRO-HDs are out of the market so I had to buy another model... Good luck to all of Sling enthusiasts (I've been having one since 2007, starting with a simple PRO) !
I'm very disappointed that I can't use Hi Definition feature; my cable box had it scrambled for copyright protection. The "normal channels' appear very blurry on my laptop and the hi def channels is somewhat better through the use of component cables.
I bought this to play my GoPro footage and stream it. It worked like a charm but then they removed the ability to play your own files with a firmware update !
I called them and they said there was no way to get it back as "it was not a feature our customers wanted"
WHat ?? This one did !!
I was really looking forward to using this unit on vacation. I almost got it working - I could only get audio. Next day I went to try again and zip, nada, My system would not even recognise the Slingbox as connected so I could not even tinker with it. There is good service availability from Slingbox but they could not help.
Big learning curve for this novice tech. I think some of the problem lies in the HDCP (copy protocol) which is attached to much of the HD programming. I did try component cables with no result.
I know people have great success with this unit so I am left very disappointed. I had to return it to the store.
I have always had Slingbox and it's very useful. It does his job! But I suggest you not to buy this model for two reasons: It's overpriced, and also, If you want to watch HD TV you can use the 350 or the M3 via component cable. This device has the HDMI port but for nothing. TV channels have HDCP so you will not be able to use this port properly. If you need WIFI then get the M3.
excellent product, I can watch my cable tv anywhere on my laptop as long as Wi-Fi is available. Must have high speed internet to get smooth live streaming.
Fonctionne tràs bien. Bon signal et facile d'utilisation
