I have a serious problem with the bitrate/picture quality I'm getting within my home network - I just can't get a half decent picture on my SlingPlayer! I've got a new Humax PVR that is outputting freeview video at 720p to my telly. It's connected to the slingbox by composite (no RGB out unfortunately).
Looking on my SlingPlayer on a PC connected to my other TV in another room the picture quality is quite frankly awful. It's all networked on Cat5 and I deliberately haven't set up internet access, so it should be streaming it really well in theory. The picture is equally bad from my the SlingPlayer on my PC.
Is there anyway I can improve the picture? I don't understand why it's so bad. My whole house is connected by cat5 going through a megabit switch and router, so my home network is as fast as is possible. There is an 'Encoding' tab in the SlingPlayer options where you can optimise the resolution for local access, but it doesn't seem to make any difference whatever I set it to.
Any insight or help greatly appreciated as at the moment the slingplayer picture really isn't useable. :-(
