    Can I use an extensikn cord?

    rpo406812

      The manual clearly states not to use a power strip or an overloaded outlet for obvious reasons.  But it does not state whether or not I can use an extension cord.  Does anyone know if you can use one?

      2nd question, do you have to download the player on the computer?  What if we would like to watch TV on a computer that I don't have admin rights to?

      Thanks.

          Hi rpo406812,

           

          Connecting the Slinglinks with an extension cord could work but it's not a supported connection since it will be better to connect them directly to the power outlet.

          To connect to the Slingbox you have two options, you can use Watch at slingbox.com or install the SlingPlayer in your computer at Slingbox.com Downloads
