This occurs whether on 3G or Wifi. I am able to change channels via remote or favorites but continue to get the same error. Any suggestions? Thanks.
What I understand from your post, is that you're having problems with the Slingbox video signal.
In this case, I would recommend to try the following links
Watch on Slingbox.com plays audio but no video
SlingPlayer is telling me that I have a weak or no video signal but I have a good Internet connection.
