Got exactly the same problem, no matter what I try, the setup fails around 15%, the message from setup assistant says the slingbox can no longer be connected to on the network, this message is displayed a few minutes after the network light goes off on the slingbox, the only light left on at the front of the slingbox is the power light.
Please see my post here - I think I might have found what might be going wrong.
Please reply and let me know
- your rough location
- which transmitter your aerial points to
- the percentage that the scan fails at
I can then check to see if your problems are the same as mine that I discuss in my post.
Sorry to have to tell you that you cannot expect any reply, help, or even an acknowledgement from any one at the Company regarding this issue, especially on this Forum.
It is a problem that has been spreading with the SlingBox PRO and PRO-HD for almost 2 years. It is a firmware matter as you surmised, but despite being fundemental to the advertised properties of the boxes, or perhaps because it is, SlingMedia will not discuss it here.
You will see that they reply to many threads on the Forum about other matters, and must have monitored the threads regarding the Freeview Tuner, but have steadfastly ignored it.
In particular look at my last comment, and if you ever hope for the matter to be resolved consider the action I have suggested there.
AND the earlier posts at
Someone from SLING has at last posted an acknowledgement.
and on a few other threads.
Pleased to get some acknowledgement from the Company, after two years.
I wonder if anyone believes it is a total coincidence that this momentous admission comes after the campaign has begun to bring this matter to much wider attention especially to potential new customers?
If, like me, you can see that there is a link, then PLEASE help me keep the pressure up. Having an acknowledgement after all this time is one thing, getting the Company to bother to get the HD and HD-PRO boxes fixed for existing customers is another matter.
