I can't help you but I have a problem with my too and looking for somewhere to get it repaired. It's not accepting the right remote control commands, I.e. I press guide and guide will be the only command it sends for the next 10 keystrokes even if different buttons are pressed. Ive tried differnt thins , diffent remes, sysem restores etc. it works fine on pc mac and ipad! But the slingcatcher system is completely unuseable.
I was looking in to the boxee and Revue but scared to spend the money if there is no Sling app on them available in the UK yet. I keep hearing mixed reports on this. I wish Sling or boxee would just comfirm that it is or not. I might take the £170 plunged just to find out.
If you do find somewhere that replaces or repairs slingcatchers please do let me know!
In the end I was able to identify the issue was with a Transient Voltage Suppressor component on the circuit board. Once I identified it I was able to source a replacement component and I was able to repair it myself this time.
I agree, it would be very useful if Sling would provide some details of their plans for including the Slingplayer in TV's or Media players for the UK market.
