I use slingbox to view tv in different rooms , so I have internet viewing disabled and yet I have netwrok issues when slingplayer is set to "Auto"
Based on my troubleshooting, I feel that when the quality in slingplayer is set to Auto it will try to optimize the streaming rate and within one minute it reaches around 4 Mbps and Slingbox solo starts having network problems and the network light starts blinking.
If I change the quality setting to "Better" instead of "Auto" the streaming rate stays at 3 Mbps and there are no network issue. When I change the quality setting to "Best" I have the same issue once the rate reaches around 4 Mbps.
I never had this issue in the past and this issue started only after I reset my device recently during when the firmware got updated.
1. I use a wired connection to do my tests
2. I changed the router to which slingbox and the slingplayer are connected and I still have the issue.
3. I also tried with different slingplayers and all have the same issue.
3. When I replace slingbox solo with slingbox 500 there are no issues , even when I set the quality to "Auto" and I always get the "Best" streaming rate
