I just bought my Slingbox 500 yesterday and today it performed an auto-restart. From the threads I have read, I haven't seen feedback about a solution. If I can't solve this, I'll just disconnect it until I travel. I know is a 'bubble gum and bailing wire' fix, but it's better than the aggravation. Slingbox has now given me a bad taste in my mouth for it. I will warn others before they buy.
