Hi, I have a slingbox Classic insatlled in the UK fed by a standard Sky box. When abroad in Switzerland I can view Sky tv on my XP netbook
with Slingpalyer v 2.04.521, Firewall enabled, SlingPalyer is an allowed exception. All settings normal factory std. , video input to be Classic is composite . The netbook is connetc via WIFI to a router.
When I switch to my Vista machine (bigger screen) with Slingplayer V 2.04.522 all the settings that I can see are the same YET I cannot see the video or hear audio. The Player appears connected ( I am invited to disconnect, the directory shows the Classic in the connetced mode) . I have powerd off the firewall yet still no luck.
In either case get an error message : Cannot redner the video stream.
When I immdiately go back to the netbook all works fine.
My Macbook Pro will not work either. My son who runs an Apple MacBook cannot connect either when he visits me.
To make it all the more confusing both my Netbook and his Apple work fine with Sling Player
in his flat 120 Km down the road in Lausanne.
We have checked both Swisscom modems - identical settings. I have insatlled and uninstalled the SlinPlayer softwarfe on the Vista PC and Macbook Pro all to no avail. My LAN is ok as all network devices incl IPTV and the Netbook with Sling Player do work.
I cannot really make this out at all. Any dieas where tpo start looking. Thks from CH
