    Slingbox Pro HD resets with power loss

    ChesterCpt

      I have having an issue when my slingbox loses power. As soon as power is restored, I have to go back through the setup inorder to view the slingbox in my account. Is there an internal battery that I need to replace? Has anyone else experienced this problem?

          Hey ChesterCpt;

           

          Thanks for using our Answers Forum.  I understand that when you lose power and it comes back, you then have to go back and reconfigure your Slingbox again.

           

          I understand that it is inconvenient that you have to reconfigure your Slingbox when the power goes out, when this happens, it is apparently setting your Slingbox back to factory settings.  I can tell you that there is no internal battery on the Slingbox that will ever need to be replaced.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Thanks,

              Thanks for this reply.I have been having the same problem with my slingbox but now I know why.However I also noted that if I stopped watching on my PC or mobile device for some hours and then wanted to connect back again I experience the same problem even if the power was never out  from the machine and internet was never interrupted,why is this so?
