    Sling boxes will not stay powered on


      I have only had my sling box for about 3 months and the power now shuts off.  I unpluged and reset everything and it will power up (or atleast lights go on) for ~10 seconds and then it powers off.  I also has a burnt smell.  Anyone else have this issue?

          there is an announcement on the support page from the sling folks. you should call them

          We hope everything's great with your Slingbox, and you're enjoying watching your TV anywhere.

          But  in the off-chance that you're having a problem (for example, your  Slingbox is not powering up, or the power light will not come on, or is  blinking randomly) - just call us! We want to help you.
