    SlingPlayer and 500


      I've had many slingboxes and love the product. My main use is to view my TV in my home office. One of the great features of SlingPlayer is it doesn't matter if i have an internet connection because I can connect to my slingbox locally through my LAN. I've just installed my new 500 and come to find out that SlingPlayer isn't compatible with this model.

      It's not a problem right now, but what happens when my internet connection is down and I can't get to the Sling website?

      How do I access my new 500 locally to watch TV without SlingPlayer?

          Hello ACC172280,


               The one suggestion that I would recommend trying, would be to try the new Desktop Slingplayer just released last month. Though it isn't technically supported for use with the Slingbox 500, I would recommend at least giving it a shot. Keep in mind though, that if it is not supported we cannot guarantee that it will work. Here is the link to download the new Desktop Slingplayer for your convenience:




          Hope this helps!
