I understand that you are having some issues with some power adapters you purchased on your local market for the Slingbox SOLO and the Slingbox PRO HD.
We recommend you to get the original Power Adapters for your Slingbox units through the UK On-line Store. Make sure to visit this link.
did you ever shed any light on what was happening with that issue!? ive seen a lot of comments like this where people have had to use different power settings on generic power adaptors to get the slingbox to work. (and that the original power supply unit wont work)
i'm in a (similar) situation where i need to find a different power supply adaptor to get the box to work, and am trying to work out what to get!!
did the box work properly for a sustained period using the other power supply settings (6v), or did it explode after a while!!?
