If you're content to stick with the Pro-HD then the best connected device is still the SlingCatcher, if you can find one on eBay or somewhere.
The players for WDTV etc are, in my experience, a step down in quality from the catcher, and Sling seem unwilling or incapable of addressing the issues with these players with any real urgency.
They work but they're not polished and pretty clunky in comparison to the good old Slingcatcher.
As an example - if I connect to my remote box using WDTV then it works ok to begin with but at some point the stream will glitch or jump (nothing unusual there with the tech) but this will then mean that all subsequent commands to change channels etc will suddenly be subject to a delay of anything up to 20s! The only way out of it is then to disconnect and reconnect. Tons of people have reported this - not just on here - and it goes back probably a year now since first reported, but have Sling done anything about it? Nope, just a couple of vague semi-promises to look into it from whichever mod has decided to spend some random time in the forums, then nothing happens.
That's just one example - pity the poor folk who get Error 10003 requiring a regular Slingbox reboot when they're put of town!
It's a shame, the idea of putting the player on multiple devices has merit but it's been woefully undermined by the execution IMHO.
Not heard anything about Roku or PS3, there were rumours about the latter over a year ago but not heard anything more since then.
Roku is a challenge for them because all the others they've released so far have been based on Flash technology, which Roku doesn't use. I guess that means it would be something of a bigger investment to get it working on Roku so maybe they're not that bothered. Who knows? Enough people have been asking for a Roku version definitely.
Unless you want to build a dedicated HTPC for watching your Slingbox, then my advice would be to do what you can to get your hands on a replacement SlingCatcher.
Having some problems with WDTV too .. and found a SlingCatcher on a site for 50 euro ..
Question though, does it too use tcpWan to connect?
I´m just after a more stable player for viewing my Pro HD stream on, so I don´t want to use a SlingCatcher if it routes the stream via Sling's servers
Thnx in advance /Åsa
I own the WD TV LIve and a Slingbox PRO-HD. Until recently it worked ok. The WDTV is slow to respond and not a great device, but when I bought it it was the only streamer that could do Slingplayer and Netflix. A few have come along since then, but the reviews of those devices are no better than the WD TV Live. Fortunately I only use the WD TV Live in my bedroom. In my living room I have a full PC, giving me access to Slingplayer on the Web, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and HBO Go. Using a full-fledged keyboard is annoying, but what I lack in remote control functionality from a streamer, I more than make up for in responsiveness. If you are looking for a streamer for a location that doesnt get used a lot, go with a streamer. If its a frequently used location, get a full fledged PC/Chrome device...that is at least until Sling gets off their lazy a$$es and makes a player for Roku. Once they do, all these discussion topics become moot.
