    Encoding Options on Slingbox 500

    amitypete

      Recently installed a slingbox 500.

      Trying to watch programs in Europe where I have an ADSL line that meets the specs - 8 Mbps download/1 Mbps upload.

      All 3 PC's the video is jumpy.  I can watch Netflix over a VPN just fine but want realtime TV.

      Are there encoding options on the 500 I can tweak or caching options I can configure to improve the video quality ?

      I've been trying to watch from the sling portal ..is there a better viewer I can run on my Windows 7 box that might support caching ?

       

      Your Speed Result for ADSL line:
      Download Speed: 6194 kbps (774.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
      Upload Speed: 900 kbps (112.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

       

      Thanks !
