So we bought our Slingbox 500 less than a year ago. These things are NOT cheap. The reason we bought it is because we have a lot of video files and now they have "discontinued" the boxes ability to play video files over the it. What the ****? This is the very reason we bought this and now I have a very expensive paper weight. I'm sooooo mad. If I could return it I would. As it stands I'll probably have to sell the piece of junk for less than 1/2 of what I paid for it after only using it a handful of time. SLINGBOX YOU SUCK!
