Is there any way to control the volume of the Sling Player using the keyboard, instead of having to use your mouse to control the little slide bar on the right side of the Player?
Yep, there sure is. Try "<" and ">". That's a Shift-[period] and Shift-[comma].
If any Mac users stumble upon this, you'll need to do a Cmd-UP/Cmd-DOWN for the same trick. (The keyboard shortcuts are listed in the Audio menu).
