Hello Rooks Turner,
I'm sorry to read that you are having buffering issues with the Slingbox. With any Slingbox model that can stream in HD, the minimum requirement to stream that video with the Slingbox is 2Mbps. With your speedtest peaking out at just over 900Kbps, that would be the cause there. I do understand that, while you are able to download other content perfectly fine, the Slingbox works very differently from those downloads and needs the 2Mbps in order to stream HD video correctly.
Hope this helps,

I'm assuming you're giving that speed in megabits per second. Big difference. I'm able to down at 900 Kilobytes per second. 900 x 8 = 7200 megabits per second. 5 mbps over the 2mbps you quoted. I think i noted the speed wrong. I should have written it 900 KBps. So thats not the issue.
Another amendment. I measured my download speed in kBps. See the table below, regardless its not in bits persecond, the number I posted is in kilobyte decimal form. Regardless, its faster than that required for HD video via the slingox.
Kilobyte (KB or K) = 1024 bytes (2 ^ 10) "binary kilobyte"
kilobyte (kB) = 1000 bytes (10 ^ 3) "decimal kilobyte"
Kilobit (Kb) = 1024 bits (2 ^ 10) "binary kilobit"
kilobit (kb) = 1000 bits (10 ^ 3) "decimal kilobit"
KBps = Kilobytes (1024 bytes) per second (binary)
kBps = kilobytes (1000 bytes) per second (decimal)
Kbps = Kilobits (1024 bits) per second (binary)
kbps = kilobits (1000 bits) per second (decimal)
bps = bits per second
