Why cant I use the slingplayer software? I was told to upgrade and now I cant even use it?
I had a classic. It worked perfect, and I have been using the unit almost daily for years. Unfortunately every time I used it, I was constantly nagged and told I needed to upgrade becuase the classic was no longer supported or was not going to work correctly anymore. Now I upgrade, and the same software that has been nagging me says that the new slingbox 350 isnt supported!?!?!?! This is beyong frustrating. That is not my only issue, the entire product has taken a HUGE step backwards in connectivity/usability and I'm very angry.
Howcome the stream stops when I launch a game?
I have two monitors. With my classic this scenario worked perfect. With the new web player, now when I launch any games or movie the slingbox feed freezes until I alt-tab or bring it forward. Yet another downgrade from my classic.
Howcome i cant use the keyboard anymore to change channels?
The onscreen controls on the website are slow, and poorly placed/designed. Why cant I use my keyboard anymore to change channels and g to bring up the guide? Third downgrade from my classic.
The website uses way more resources then the player.
Seems that the web player is using almost double and even tripple the resources the slingplayer was using.
When I go fullscreen the mouse dissapears when it's on the second display
If you have the slingbox go fullscreen it blanks out your mouse. Therefor if you have two screens you cant even use your computer anymore because the mouse goes invisible. The only fix is to launch slingbox in one browser and then use another browser for web/use.
When you double click fullscreen to come out, it just goes black
Why on earth do you not bring the main window back to the front? If you have it fullscreen and then you double click you just go back to the desktop and the original sling window does not even come back up. I believe this is due to the dual monitor setup again, but it's not it has the same result in single display. Terrible design.
Rewind buttons dont work on the website
There are big rewind fastforward and pause/play buttons on the website. They do nothing. (not the dvr ones) I cant rewind or fast forward. The only way to do it is to move the slider manually. IF you do move then slider the video and audio go out of sync most of the time and you have to refresh the page to get back to live/insync
My remote was not a choice so i picked a similar one
I have the most popular cable box for verizon fios. In fact every single person in my area has the same box and yet it's not listed in your database. After looking thru a few it looks the the entire database needs some serious updating. Motorola HD QIP 71001
Picture and audio going out of sync
Becuase the player is now web based (why on earth did you guys do this) If your browsing the internet and your browser has a hickup or your flash player gets initiated or you start to do another directx stream your slingbox either freezes or goes out of sync.
So If you guys are going to FORCE me to use the website...
What happens if you go bankrupt?
What happens if you have website issues?
What happens if I loose internet?
What happens if I go to my vacation house with no internet, I wont be able to get the player to work even I brought it with me and have all hardware on site?
What happens if the slingsystem which links the slingboxes to the accounts/websites goes down?
What happens if you guys get sold?
Why do I have to deal with the absolutely awful webplayer?
Why would you want to bring everyone to your website therefor increasing web costs when I could just use a player? It's not like your making advertising money?
How come there is a player for android, ios, WD and now tv's but there is no app anymore for MAC/PC? What sense does that make at all?
All and all I'm incredibly dissapointed that I upgraded my box!
The quality of the picture is the only upside. (It sure does looks fantastic)
Few spelling and grammer mistakes, sorry I tried to write this out as fast as possible to get the info down.
