Ditto here for the iPhone app.
Got the same messages on desktop and iPad versions of Sling this morning and eventually discovered I needed to update the firmware. Did that and after a few attempts at entering the password then I finally reconnected. I still have no idea what happened to kickstart it to life agin... or how I did it.
Then I downloaded the iPhone app (@HK$118!!!)... and faced the same problems. This time... and so far...absolutely no joy.
Have tried changing both my master passwords but that didn't work. Also deleted and downloaded the app again on iPhone. That doesn't work either.
Just can't understand why Sling can't fix these problems once and for all - or clearly show the solutions without us having to dig through mountains of sh*t to try and get a crumb of an answer.
Read other threads about this but no solution forthcoming. Please help the mass, Slingbox. It's hugely irritating!!!
I'm 6000 miles from home so can't restore to factory settings or re-install software, etc.
Anyone with any suggestions? Or do I just spend another couple of hours typing in the same password and getting the same b*llsh*t "Invalid Password. The Slingbox password is Incorrect. Try again?" message???
Yea I got it fixed, but I can't remember exactly what I did. I want to say that I just unplugged my slingbox from everything or hit the reset button on the back of it, and then started over with setting it up and connecting it to my computer, etc. I haven't had the problem since I got it fixed, so I don't know what causes it.

I have the same problem now trying to connect to my Slingbox 500 through my Slingcatcher.
I'm logged in to my Slingbox account but when i try to connect to my new Slingbox it keep asking for pasword and telling me it's wrong.
I have no problem when connecting through slingplayer with pc/mobile or watch online.
What to do??
