I was fortunate enough to get a chance to see what my slingbox would do while I was in Hong Kong. I got the same troubles. The only thing I can say is that the latency of the connection became very large, sometimes close to a half a second, thus displays all the pauses and audio breaks. From what I've read about internet connections in China is that internet traffic is monitored. I think it is simply from being in China. Hong Kong was my stop over for 1 day and 1 night. I was in Manila for my trip and had a very pleasant time using my services there.
