besides having the stream very slow, i'm also having issues connecting to the slingbox when I'm using a mac. Ihave to try several times to connect to the SB.
I don't know what's going on with the streaming being so slow! I have read that a lot of people is having that slow speed issue but no answer from Slingbox yet!
For this type of issues to connect to the Slingbox remotely, it's necessary to run first the Internet Viewing Setup at the Slingbox location manually, this will fix also the trouble that you are getting to connect to the Slingbox remotely. Have a look at this link if after the setup you still have a low streaming speed:
It's necessary to test the connection at home using speedtest.net just to confirm if the upload speed is normal since this is a regular cause for this type of troubles viewing the Slingbox:
Hope this helps
I don't think we're talking about remote streaming here. At least I'm not. I'm at home with an upload speed of 3.6 mbps, download speed of 18 mbps yet I get a streaming speed of 50 - 150 kbps, so of course, my video is very choppy and my connection constantly gets cut off. I obviously have enough upload/download speed, so why is my streaming speed so slow?
I am having the same problem. I am streaming at home and the it used to work great but over the last 2 days it wont stream above 41. It is definitely not my slingbox or connection since it streams perfectly to both my Ipad and Iphone. Something is going on their side although they are trying to get me to pay 30 dollars to call them for support to just tell them the problem is on their side. Very disappointed with sling media right now
