Hello I am new to sling box and have a set up question. Does the sling box need to be set up to a computer all the time or just for set up? Does the sling box even need to be connected to the computer? I have a mac book air and and Ipad can I set up the sling box with either of those?
Both have current software.
I have a few colleagues running MAC’s and they run parallel’s on top
Thus running windows xp on the MAC
This enables them to run all windows compatible s/w on the mac
Suggest you go to a MAC store and get some expert bar advice
I haven’t dealt with a MAC
It Must be connected to internet for you to access (should be direct Ethernet connect, not wi-fi
You don’t have to have your laptop on the internet always, but can’t sling unless you are on the internet (preferably with high speed connection) and the sling must be on the net
You don’t connect your computer to the sling
You connect your computer to your sling through your sling internet account
Login to sling, create an account, and then you have the most options configuring your sling, over the net (updates, etc)
I have TiVo (DVR) and regular cable and can view both on sling
Does anyone else have a solution for this issue? None of the solutions suggested here work for me.
Anything that I watch on my SB either with the Slingbox Player or the web site the audio progressively gets ahead of the video!!!
Someone has to have answer for this!! Please let me know something!! This is ridiculous!!
Oh, I just downloaded an update on my laptop for the web player in FireFox and the problem is still there so the latest update does not resolve this.

The recent Sling promotion to upgrade older sling products caught my attention because I could not access my slingbox pro with my ipad. I purchased an HD 350 and have had constant out of sync audio ever since I installed it. It works fine on our ipads but on my windows 7 laptop the audio is always out of sync. I have tried running it under windows 32 bit explorer and under google chrome. Nothing works. I have disabled hardware acceleration as suggested but the problem persists. My only solution seems to be to put my older slingbox pro back in service too and use it for PC access and the hd 350 when using an ipad. Is this a solution, yes, but I think Sling media needs to find a better solution and post it with an alert. My streaming speed seems to run over 6000 kbs so I don't think bandwidth is the issue. I am soooooooooooooo disappointed.
Thank you for using our online forums here. I am sorry that you are having issues with the audio not being in sync on the newwatch.slingbox.com platform. There are a few things that could be the culprit here, it is hard to say without some more information.
