The Slingbox solo is working great form me. I got it about 2 weeks ago and used it while taveling during that time. Here's my only issue. The screen I see on my laptop cuts out about 5% of the info on the right and left hand side of the menu screens. I use ATT U-verse as my Internet and cable provider. This makes navigating the menus difficult. I have to remember where the "Play" function is as the word "play" is cut off. "Erase" comes out as "e" showing the last letter of the word. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. The zoom doesn't fix the issue although some zoom setting reduce the amount that is cut off.
If the zoom in the Slingplayer can't fit the picture in the screen, I suggest you check the zoom and the video mode in your cablebox and change to the same format of the Slingplayer screen, if you don't know where to find the zoom options in your cablebox contact your provider to get information about it.
