      Hello,I am the user in "Taiwan". I have a problem to ask you.
      I can use android phone connect to slingbox and watch TV by wifi,however it can't connect by 3G.
      When I login in my information on your webside,my slingbox directory country show "USA"
      I am not sure the reason that it can't connect by 3G. I hope you could help me to solve it.
      Thank you very much.

            Hello liang6453,


            Thanks for posting in the Slingbox Answers Forum! I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble connecting to your Slingbox when your android phone is using a 3G network connection.


            This is because the Slingbox does require a bit of bandwidth to be able to connect to it. 3G/4G connections often drop. However, you can install a speedtest application to your phone, and test the speed you are getting from the 3G/4G network.


            The requirements for SlingPlayer for android phones are 250kbps on the phone and also on the network at the location of the Slingbox. I have provided an article below for SlingPlayer for Mobile Devices. If you go to SlingPlayer for Android Phones and click on Requirements for SlingPlayer for Android Phones, it will also show you this information.
