It sounds like you've had quite the ownership experience with the Slingbox. On the matter of the connection issue, I've found an awesome page the has a bunch of troubleshooting steps on it.
Also, here is some information on which systems can accommodate Slingplayer.
Hope this helps,

Thanks, but I've already been through all these things. As I mentioned, it was working fine until just a few days ago, so it should not be a problem with compatibility with browsers or OS.
My post did provide a link on Slingbox with another guy with the same problem a couple years ago, but he was still under warranty. That link is answers.slignbox.com/message/8833#8833. I also have the dim connection light that he references.
I have also been on other forums, outside slingbox, and I see that this is a common problem with your equipment. Unfortunately, most relate that Slingbox Support did not help. Are you willing to prove them wrong?
I have been a real Slingbox fan and talked up your product with my friends. If you can help me, that will remain the case. If not, I will do without until Apple brings out Apple TV before deciding what to do.
I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue with your Slingbox. Based on the symptoms you've described, its likely that your power supply is malfunctioning. I would recommend replacing the power supply, here is a link to our online store for replacement parts: Buy Now Direct From Sling Media.
Hope this helps!
