    Difference between Phone and Tablet versions

    Chop69

      I've had an Android phone for a while now, and just bought a Transformer Prime tablet.  To my surprise, the phone version of Slingplayer instaled and works just fine.

       

      So is there any advantage to buying the Tablet version?  I've only got a Slingbox Solo, so no HD streaming.

          I just installed the Tablet version on my Motorola Xoom (already had Slingplayer for Phones), and I can tell you the picture quality is much more impressive.  Also, the new integrated Guide functionality is offers a much easier way to scan what's currently on and change channels.

           

          HOWEVER, the remote functionality for the tablet version is very limited as compared to the Slingplayer for Phones.  I can't change discs on my multi-disc player, and I can't bring up recorded shows on the DVR.  I have to open the Slingplayer for Phones to select a DVD or a show from the DVR list, and then close it and open the Slingplayer for Tablets.  Very annoying.  I posted on another category in this forum if you want to see my write-up.
