    Why does Slingbox pro not work with iPad´s slingplayer app?

    hip1243

      Hi all

       

      I just got a Slingbox Pro to be able to see TV on my iPad. But for some reason the iPad slingplayer APP does not support my Slingbox PRO?

       

       

      • A Slingbox SOLO or a Slingbox PRO-HD is supported. The Slingbox PRO, Slingbox AV, Slingbox TUNER, and Slingbox Classic will not work at all with the iPad.

       

      Please explain why The Slingbox PRO, Slingbox AV, Slingbox TUNER, and Slingbox Classic will not work at all with the iPad?

       

      Best regards

          You are unlikely to get Sling to comment on this but I assume the Solo & Pro-HD were built with extra hardware that enabled a much improved video stream to be produced, but using a different system.   Then when the iPad app was written it used just this later streaming system, so is not compatible with earlier models.

           

          I can only assume this was done because of some limitation of the iPad hardware that forced Sling to use this alternative streaming method.
