    slingbox 500 was working fine now only works with cell phone app and not desktop

      My model 500 has worked fine for years.  I had it hooked up via wifi and then reconfigured it to a wired connection at my new house. (That was a chore to figure out in it's self!)  Now I can only access my slingbox via my cellphone or nexus apps and not my desktop. I thought it might be a firewall issue but that can't be because my cell phone and nexus use the same network.  I've made sure that chrome slingbox extension was removed and the desktop app installed. But no joy.  It just hangs with the message 'connecting to your slingbox in slingplayer'.

       

      Anyone know what's going on and how to fix this?
