I'm having the same issue and unforutantely I'm out of warranty. I've maybe used this for a total of 10 hours during the 20 months I've had it. I decided to use it for the first time in about 8 months today and it won't hold a signal for longer than 30 seconds.
I've contemplated purchasing another but with the little use this thing has actually had I find that to be a poor solution to the problem.
I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your Slingbox. I know that it can be very frustrating when things don't work the way that they should. I have attached a link that I hope will be helpful in finding a resolution to your issue.
Hope this helps,

I have the same problem. It just died last week. I've tried resetting it and it will stay connected until I get to detecting component video, then it just drops off the network. Switch still shows a link light, but Slingbox network light just goes dark. I've had it for 3 years, so I guess I'm just out of luck. Very unfortunate.
