    Is my SlingBox Pro dead?

    PLPrince

      I installed the Slingbox Pro (the red one) about 3-4 months ago. It was working fine, when suddenly stopped working last weekend. I was out of town and when I got back home I realized that the power must have gone down, since the clocks on my appliances were reset. I tried to connect to the box from the SlingPlayer ver. 2.0.4.522 on my Windows XP. Couldn't do it. So I reset the box to Factory Settings by pressing and holding the RESET button for about five seconds. I wanted to set the box from scratch. When choosing Connect->Slingbox directory (in the SlingPlayer), the program "sees" my box as "My Slingbox, Unconfigured". When highlighing it and clicking on "Connect" button, I'm getting an error message "There was a problem communicating with the Slingox. Try connecting again." I also tried to configure the box from slingbox web page and got the same error message.

       

      Is my SlingBox "fried"? Has someone experienced it before?

       

      Thank you in advance for your response(s)!
