    SlingPlayer Mobile for Android won't work with Slingbox Pro?

    toughman

      I just purchased SlingPlayer for Android and tried to connect to my Slingbox Pro.  I got the error message: SlingPlayer Mobile for Android is not compatible with your Slingbox. Please visit www.slingbox.com to learn more about our upgrade program.  But, on the slingbox website:

      REQUIREMENTS FOR SLINGPLAYER MOBILE FOR ANDROID MOBILE PHONES

      Slingbox Requirements:

      • A Slingbox SOLO, Slingbox PRO, or Slingbox PRO-HD.


      How come my SlingPlayer + Slingbox Pro won't work?

       

      Thanks,

          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?

           

          Thanks
