I understand that you are having some issues when using the SlingPlayer software version 188.8.131.522 on a Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) computer.
The main reason is that this specific software version (no longer supported) was developed for previous OS X versions. This means that if you want to get the connection to your Slingbox using this computer, we recommend you to go to watch.slingbox.com
watch.slingbox.com is not working properly.
As posted in another forum, the streaming rate bounce up and down.
After viewing 3~5 min, it give W202 and W211 error code.
My system is Lion with Safari 5.1.5.
Slingbox Pro-HD with firmware 2.1.350
before Slingbox network maintainace (4th of April), it works perfectly but afterwards become unwatchable and annoying.
Please fixed the problem as soon as possible.
We don't like to pay for something which is not even working for it suppose to .
I have the same issue and have searched the forums and see many having the same issue - but no solution.
When at home on the same network, the slingplayer/box work fine.
If i try to connect at work (across town) it plays for a few seconds/minutes and then errors.
There was an error connecting to your Slingbox. Please try again. Do you want to retry? [Code:W211]
My uncle in Thailand was able to view with very few issues until a week or so ago.
He reported seeing a maintenace update on the Sling website, and now he too cannot stay connected for more than a few
seconds/minute before getting the same error.
The old (unsupported) Sling App acts the same way. No error message - just drops the connection.
Please - Sling Support... find out what is happening. It is totaly unusable like this!
I have reset the box several times! Your only response to this matter is "reset the box"
That doesn't fix it! Let's find out a common thread of those that are having this issue...
What information do you need to troubleshoot this?
I have the Slingbox Pro HD and an Apple Airport Extreme Router. Cable Modem.
Absolutly true! I tried watching my Slingbox Pro-HD on my Windows partition and it would be perfectly fine. And my dad's computer can watch Slingbox fine too and we are on the same internet network. Come on Slingbox! Figure out what is happening because this is getting really annoying not being able to watch from OSX 10.7!
