    Problem controlling Slingbox solo with iPad when abroad


      I have just returned from a holiday in New York. I had high hopes of being able to use my Slingbox Solo while I was there via my iPad 2. I tested everything before I went to make sure I could change channels, operate the planner etc. I even tried once at the airport using my phone as a wifi hotspot and got it to work. When I got to the hotel though I couldn't change channels or control my Sky box at all. It was stuck on ITV the whole time.The wifi was supposed to be high speed but I noticed that You Tube videos did not play that smoothly. Could it just be that the wifi was not fast enough or could something else have been blocking the signal? I would like to try to sort this out for future trips. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
