    Want to get a Pro HD but I am worried about Power issue.

    loudo2002

      I know all of the positives of the Slingbox Pro HD and now the fact that I can watch it thru my WD live player. I realize that there is really no other device out there like the slingbox that can do the things it can do.

       

      My issue is this: Is it a given that the power issue is going to happen? I really want to rely on this box come NFL season for football games from my home market where the slingbox will be located. I will not be near the slingbox to troubleshoot it if the power supply stops working and I dont want to miss any games or extended time where I would be "waiting for a part" or a new unit to come in the mail.

       

      My question is, Is there a percent of these that go bad from the power supply issue? 10%, 20%, 50%?

       

      Is this thing really worth the risk? 250 bucks is not chump change!

       

      Thanks for your help.

       

      PS....I looked at the Vulcano, but it only works on mobile devices and I want to play this thru the app on the WD Live onto my TV only.

       

      Thanks Again!

          Hello loudo2002,

           

          Thank you for participating in the Slingbox Answers Forum. We're happy to hear you'd like to join the Slingbox Technology! I understand your concerns when it comes to issues that could happen with our product. Slingbox is available 7 days a week, 365 days a year and we are more than happy to support our customers who may experience a problem. It's rare that we would have to replace the unit with this issue, so I strongly recommend purchasing a Slingbox for the football season.

           

          Hope this Helps.

           

          Best Regards,
