      Hi , have just set up a sling box with camera linked in birdbox. all works fine and can view fron desk top pc or ipad ( having bought the app) .

       

      However the download is 10 gb after about 3 hrs!!   and have a download limit !

       

      cant understand why the upload is  only part of a gb ?  would have though it would be the same ?

       

      My main question is :    is there a way to view directly via the router without having to 'download' it from the web ?

       

      thanks J G

          If both your Slingbox and iPad/computer are both on the same local network accessing the internet through the same router; then they aren't running through the web and are communicating over the network. If your iPad is on a 3g/4g network...then you need to connect to your wifi network.

           

          I don't know where you're seeing the "download is 10gb" bit. on the iPad, provider data usage? Your local network traffc will be very high..but that doesn't matter.
