    UK Classic retune


      Yes you already know that with the recently required retuning  in the UK, the slingbox classic is now not functioning due to the retuning freezing on the box.


      When are you going to release some new firmware to handle this or are you just going to let all with this box down and do nothing for them?

      Of course if you do nothing this will be a big message for all who own your products.


      Sorry if this has been posted before. Couldn't see it!

          This has been an issue since the end of last year. It is due to slingboxes not adhering (is that spelled correctly?) to the Arqiva digital transmission specification for UK.

          If you have a search you will see there are many posts about this. But Sling have NEVER responded or released corrected firmware. Now the problem is cropping up again. My slingbox pro also has the issue, freezing at about 40% tuning and then slingplayer reporting that connection to slingbox has been lost. If sling want to send me the source code I will fix it.

              Thanks Bob,


              I have seen some posts now.


              One useful one, made me pull my aerial lead out just before the tuning reaches the 'freezing' point. Put it straight back in after it goes by and it completes the search. After a few tries, you can end up with most channels if you are quick!


              I think your spelling is fine and I wish I had the source code to send you.
