Hello. My brother has a SlingBox in Hawaii. I am in China. For over one year, I have been using the non-browser app ("SlingPlayer") successfully. I know, it isn't as high-tech as the broswer option, but it the best choice for my use. It no longer accepts the password. My brother is not really understanding what I am dealing with, since he has never used any application; he opened his Internet Explorer to watch.slingbox.com and it just works. I can do that also, but only via a MacBook. I prefer the method I have been using for over a year, using my PowerMac G4 with a 22" screen, put the small SlingPlayer window in the bottom corner, and no battery to deal with. I use this computer for everything when I'm home, so I don't want to run two computers: the MacBook for watching the SlingBox and the desktop for everything else, not to mention the positioning issue of two screens.
I am not asking for further development of the app. The app opens fine. I don't need any update. The problem is that the thing is in a rut of asking for the password to connect and the password fails (at least I assume it fails -- no error message, just pops up the password box again after a few seconds).
Does anyone know a solution for the password failing? I have tried both the standard and the administrator password, both fail.
I encourage you to check this link and follow the included instructions.
If you are away from your Slingbox, you will need to get someone at the Slingbox location in order to apply this troubleshooting steps.
