Are you experiencing this issue while using Watch on Slingbox.com? Provided below is a link to the website that I referred to.
Awaiting your response!

Anthony: They are talking about the standalone Desktop Player, nothing to do with Watch.com
TradepireLLC: You won't get any help from Sling Media on this issue, they have washed their hands of this software and won't support it any more. Unfortunately I am not sure i can help, I have installed the player a number of times under lots of different Windows versions and never experienced this problem. I assume you have tried installing it with AVG disabled. And tried installing it as an administrator ?
I've had this happen a few times. What I found (in my case) was that sling player has started but does not show any graphic until such time as it has successfully logged into the sling system. If it fails to get logged in after some time, it will display the program but with a white box error message saying that it was unable to load your sling profile.
How long have you left it after double clicking the start icon? I have seen nothing for up to 1 minute sometimes.
It only seems to happen if it is having a problem contacting the sling system, otherwise it loads in a second or two.
Thanks for the response. I had somewhat given up, but if you guys are willing to help me, that would be great. I bought a short subscription to USTVNOW to get me through short term, but they only have minimal channels.
I try the link again. I don't have a box. I'm only trying to watch this on my computer. So, I'll try it this weekend and update you.
