The latest version of Slingplayer 184.108.40.2061 is not compatible with VIP 922 it does support this hardware. But surprsingly slingplayer old version 2.0.3508 recgnize VIP 922 and work fine. but the Guide does not work. The web interface of Dish Network is not effecient as windows Slingplayer and picture quality comapre to Slingplayer is poor.
Is there any plan for new release of Slingplayer to include VIP 922 support. I talked to Dish Network, and it was surprise for tech support to know that Slinplayer and slingcatcher do not work. They had noted my request to look into, but when, I do not have any clue.
It isn't that V2.0.4 doesn't support the hardware, as far as I know it was a decision by someone inside Sling that any VIP 922 owner would be forced to watch it through their web interface. So a 're-direction' function was built into the latest Software. As you have seen, simply using an older version gets around the problem.
