    SlingBox Pro: works for few hours and then goes offline needing to switch off and on to start working again

    cyberjoe

      SlingBox Pro (firmware 1.4.2)  brand new.

      Set up without any problem, connected to a Huawei Router (Vodafone Station Italy).

      Static IP 192.168.1.11 setup.

      Port 5001 fowarded (TCP/UDP) to 192.168.1.11 (subnet 255.255.255.240).

      Perfectly working and reachable from the internet.

      I use Network Scan (windows program) to control the devices on the network.

      SlingBox is up and running.

      I setup  640 x 480 resolution on internet (my friend in the upcountry uses to look TV on pc with slingplayer from a poor bandwith site)

      The device seems working flawlessy for few hours.

      During the video watching my friend change frequently the channels,...during a channel change the slingbox hungs...

      He calls me back in the home and i can see the Network Scanner program not seeing the 192.168.1.11 IP anymore...

      The 2 leds in front of the slingbox device are up

      The slingbox seems working perfectly but it is not pingable anymore

      To restore the functioning i need to swith off the slingbox and then switch on again...

      Magically the slingbox is back up online again

       

      This happens many times in the six days following...

      I tryied to change the IP of the Slingbox...

      The problem is still there...

       

      So...

      What could i do now???...
