Hi...I have a similar problem. I use slingplayer software on a few laptops and notice that some have newer versions than others (for example this one is using version 220.127.116.111. However, if I choose the update option, it always tells me that I am using the latest software. Friustraing as I can;t pause/rewind etc and am sure that the oater versions give a clearer picture. I can;t find a simple download option on the website.
