Still can't connect however I loaded the slingplayer.exe software. Oddly, the software attempts to run, my mouse arrow turns into a question mark, then nothing...
If I have the task manager [processes} running, I can see slingplayer start, but stop in about 3-4 seconds.
Any suggestion would be welcome.
upgraded to highest level of FireFox 6,
After loading the newext addin 220.127.116.11 xpi, I get this warning.
HTTP Status 404 - /watch/downloads/pc/webslingplayer.xpi
type Status report

It seems to be an issue with the installation of the plugin, that's why you are getting that error. I recommend to reset the plugin with the steps that you can find here,
Hope this helps
Unfortuantely neither suggestions for the browsers work.
FireFox goes into an endless loop of trying to load the plug in
Explorer tries to recover the tab:
We were unable to return you to slingbox.com.
Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem.
What you can do:
Go to your home page Try to return to slingbox.com More information
Any other suggestions?
Here is more feedback on the pluginsDescription
Sling have released a Firefox plugin that connects to a Slingbox in the same way that the SlingPlayer should.
Flash plugin is also required.
There is also an IE plugin available.
The plugin is intended for Windows users who do not have admin access. This is not an issue under Wine so using the true Slingplayer makes more sense.Old test results

It will disconnect an existing sling connection
What does not
As soon as it starts to display the remote its stops and says and "error has occured"
What was not tested
I understand that you are having some issues in order to install the plug in on your computer.
Since you mentioned some information about different Operating Systems and free software applications, I recommend you to check the following link. It will provide you with the information about supported Operating Systems and web browsers.
If your computer does not meet any of these requirements, the Slingbox might not work in a proper way.
