Same here. I can watch a friend's slingbox on my new macbook pro. But I can't watch my slingbox pro hd (located at my folks' place) on my computer. Worst part: everyone else (including Slingbox customer service folks) is able to watch my slingbox. In other words, my slingbox won't work with my computer but will work for everyone else. I spoke twice to some nice Slingbox tech people today and the answer was: your slingbox works, we can see it, you can see other slingboxes but we don't know why you can't see your particular slingbox. It's just weird. I paid $250 for weird?
When I try to watch my Slingbox, it either can't access my slingbox or it seems to access it and says "starting streaming" but it just stays there at 0 kps until it finally gives up and gives me Error Code W211. I have a macbook pro 17" that I bought yesterday. It uses new Lion OS X - 10.7.2. My firewall is off. I tried deleting and reloading the plugin. I tried using Firefox Version 6 instead of Safari. Nothing works. Anyone else having the same trouble? Any suggestions or solutions? I'm about to ask for a refund but want to give Slingbox one more chance.
Hi Annabelle1, if you are having issues to connect to the Slingbox you need to check that your Slingbox is set up properly, the description of the error 211 is in the article below:
Also make sure that your Internet Viewing is set up properly.
