    Need Help


      I am having trouble viewing my slingbox remotely. I was viewing my slingbox at home before coming to work however now that I am at work I am unable to view it. I am getting the error message "There was a problem communicating with the slingbox. Try connecting again." I am able to view web pages. Please Please help I am bored out of my mind.

            I am having trouble connecting to my slingplayer on my laptop.  Before I left on a trip overseas, and I've used it before overseas in the past without problems, I tested it to make sure everything was working.  It was.  When I got overseas it wouldn't connect.  I went through uninstall/reinstall, having spouse double check on the settings and passwords from the home network and nothing has changed.


            I'm getting error: 0x8007274C


            I've tried online through the website and on my laptop; it tells me that there's no internet connection when there is and that it can't locate my slingplayer.  It says to check my firewall settings and I've added sling to the exceptions list and still nothing.  I turned off my spyware and virus protections and that didn't help.


            I'm leaving again for overseas in 4 days and I need this resolved badly.  HELP!
