Hi toughman - sorry to hear you're having difficulty. You're right - SlingPlayer Mobile for Android phones should work with your Slingbox PRO, provided the PRO has the latest/greatest firmware. The marketing page says it will work - let me dig up the correct specs.
When you bought the app from the Android Market, did you purchase the phone version or the tablet version?

I used my Asus Transformer TF101 to purchase the software from Android market. I really don’t know phone version or something else. However, I have different slingboxes and my tablet can view Slingbox Pro-HD. I think I have the tablet version. SlingPlayer Version 22.214.171.124.
Is this a right version for my tablet or not? If not, can I change my slingplayer to a right one?
It sounds like you have the tablet version, which won't work with the PRO, but will work great with your PRO-HD. The app that you purchased is specially optimized for the tablet, so you definitely bought the right one. Here are the specs:
The version you quoted specs on in your first post is available for Android phones. It can work on tablets (like other Android phone apps), but it won't be an optimal tablet viewing experience, because it was built for a smaller screen, etc.
In the Android Market, the apps are labeled either:
- SlingPlayer for Phones, or;
- SlingPlayer for Tablets
Have you tried it with your PRO-HD yet?
