    Update 2.1.420 broke Slingplayer for Windows

    thesteve

      My slingbox pro HD's were both updated to version 2.1.420 from 2.1.370 in the last 24 hours. Both of them no longer work with the Windows standalone player now.(latest version 2.0.4.522) I have tried restarting everything and reinstalling the program.

      It attempts to connect and then says "There was a problem communicating with the Slingbox. Try connecting again."

       

      If I click "tell me more" then I get:

      Error: 0x80004005

      Context: 46

      Operation: 1041

       

      Both sling boxes still work fine with my Android phone and tablet apps.

       

      I use the standalone windows app on several machines so you guys have really ruined the usablity of the product. I know the web plugin exists but its performance is much worse and CPU usage is much higher then the standalone app.

       

      Can you please look into fixing this or is there a way I can downgrade to the previous working firmware?
