So....I made the problem even worse it seems. I reset the 350 and re-configured it. Now, the WD box is connecting in relay mode and the quality is soooo much worse than it was before.
A call to sling media was little help. I was told it was a known issue that would be fixed with a future software update. They said that the slingplayer for connected devices is not connecting to 350's correctly whether local or remote. Apparently I avoided the problem until my slingbox died and a replacement was sent. Even then, I had 12 good hours after the replacement arrived before the problem started happening.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is there any workarounds or anything that anyone has found, or any suggestions of anything I can try?
I can connect to a Pro-HD box that a friend in Canada has without an issue. This is somewhat of a workaround, but I'd like to watch my local stations for news, and have access to my DVR and On Demand content, like I have had since I set this up a month ago.
Just curious.... Did you ever get this issue resolved? I have a 350 and am looking at remote media players just for my sling player solution. I'm not thrilled with the Roku needing a phone as part of the solution. I am looking at the lower end Netgear Neo and the WD TV play as possible players.
Do you or anyone out ther have any input as to which might be better(less buggy)
