This used to be a good forum. leave it up to sling to remove a great forum. is there another forum that was similar to the slingcommunity forum? All I want to know is when the storm 2 version comes out. this is ridiculous. it obviously works since you could use the pearl version. what happened to the open forum?
Hi BGreenToo (and everyone),
Thanks for participating here in the Forums and for providing your feedback! Your question about whether or not Answers.Slingbox.com is an open forum is a valid one and hopefully we can answer it simply:
Yes! This is an open forum, for technical support.
We always appreciate and try to incorporate customer feedback. But, as ArizonaSackbut stated above, we want to keep the focus on the technical here. We will not be commenting on unannounced or unreleased products, simply because this is a technical support forum, not a rumor site.
We can all agree that the majority of us want a civil discussion and we want our technical questions answered in a friendly, open way. None of us here at this community want to be distracted by trolls or flames or rumors. And so this is how we roll, gentlemen!
The forums will continue to evolve and grow. We're listening to you. Based on positive feedback like some of the posts above, we've introduced new communities dedicated to Enhancement Requests and Product Feedback - a community where customers can post their appeals for new Sling solutions. Think, "Hey, I would like to see a SlingPlayer Mobile for Blackberry XYZZ!"
We sincerely hope this answers your question!
