...lot of issues today...I don't know what is going on...I hope that somebody is working on it at Sling!...I can connect to my slingbox HD with my phone (android slingplayer), but with my pc, I can't. I get connected, the remote flashes and then I get the typical error message "there was an error...".... Not sure what is going on. I tried to reboot and connected through sling.com....it is not working either.
I am 100% confident that my slingbox is fine since it works with my phone with no issues.
Connection works fine with slingbox solo as well, but not with HD. I believe that some software update has screwed everything up.
Please SLING, let us know!
What I understand from your post is that you can't connect using Internet Explorer 8
In this case and since you're saying that is working under Firefox, then I would recommend to check the following link since the problem could be with the Internet Explorer version that you're using.
