Hi n9szf & lvitale,
We understand that you want to be able to use your iPad with the red Slingbox PRO. As lvitale mentioned, the iPad application requires a higher resolution and this is not compatible with this old unit. Only the Slingbox PRO-HD and the SOLO will play normally on the iPad. You can take advantage of the Upgrade Program since you already own an older model:
I just got "burned" too. I have an older Slingbox, that I really enjoy, and just now bought the SlingPlayer for my iPad only to find out that it is not compatible. I bought the player for my Droid X phone and it works pretty good, not perfect but acceptable. I really wish SlingMedia would have warned me about compatibility issues before I bought it. After all, they know what kind of Slingbox I have, don't they?
I want a refund. How do I go about getting my money back?
