So,,,, I ordered 2 power supplies for my Sling Box PRO HD from http://www.slingbox.com/go/buy-replacement-parts but I ordered the wrong ones. The power supply for the Sling Box Pro will not work. I quickly went back to cancel my order, then placed the correct one. The sling store was too fast and my original order was already processed. If you are ditzy like me, please be careful when ordering and read the full description. Replying to the notification-only email address will not get you anywhere because the address does not accept incoming mail. It's a good idea to read the notes in the email too so you won't spend hours typing back into a void. The tricky part is returning the freaking wrong package that you stupidly ordered with your bag of hair brain. If you are away from the delivery location, you must find someone that is able to make decisions on your behalf. Make sure they eat a wholesome breakfast, not too much though, and perhaps a can of V8. Once the FedEx delivery person arrives, recipient should take in some deep breaths to get oxygen to the dormant brain cells. Why not have them pull up a chair for the nice FedEx delivery person give them copies of the invoices and say "I want the package for the Sling Box Pro HD NOT the one for the Sling Box Pro. Please help me. I am mentally disabled." The FedEx man or woman may not be able to help with your 2nd request, but he or she is able to give you the correct package. FedEx people know their packages. They are good at stuff like that.
I still don't know for sure if replacing the power supply will work. If it does, probably will, somebody get 20 points. Meanwhile, based on all the useless experiments with different operating systems and browsers, I've learned that my XP pro 64 is superior to Vista and Windows 7 when watching sling, sling boxes do not appreciate being repeatedly turned on and off, and that me being a female with better luck and the thing about changing the login is simply a coincidence. Maybe there is hope for me after all to learn and grow. Thank you so much for listening.
