Thanks for your answer.
I reviewed the systems, programs and browsers stuff again. I
had done all that in october when i first installed my Sling box.
Everything looks all right there.
At home the speed test gave me: *5.03 Mbps download/ 0.68 Mbps
upload. *This is wi-fi situation, it can get better if i connect direct
At the other location (country home) I have tested good results
As I said previously my cell phone works with no freezing
video, same with my old penthium 4. The problem occurs with my Dell laptop

Hello again tiss,
The main problem I am seeing with your setup is the upload speed you are receiving. We like to see anywhere from 600kbps to 1Mbps. Being that it is working with all of your other devices and not with the Windows 8 computer I think this might be part of the problem because it demands more speed on the Windows 8 machine. Another issue I think you are running into is the fact that with Windows 8 demands a lot more out of your computer. With windows 8 the operating system demands 1GB of ram just for normal process witch windows XP demands much less. If you have not updated the RAM in that machine from Windows Xp that could be causing the freezing and performance of the Slingplayer on that computer. If you could give us a little more information about your computer I would be more than happy to throw a few more suggestions your way.
