You are right Alan! I didn't realise that this was such a widespread issue, and the Sling team confirmed to me that they are "working" on a fix.
They advised me that the best (only?) solution was to do the update in a Windows environment which I have carried out today. I had other issues using Internet Explorer
which were resolved after I downloaded and used Mozilla Firefox and all went smoothly after that. Having been a Mac user now for many years the experience reminded me what a clunky
environment Windows is. Perhaps its just a case familiarity.
I am setting up a sling box pro. In going through the scripts it says the software needs to be updated to the latest version. This process begins normally and when it reaches the 25% complete stage it hangs!
I have tried this several times but always the same result. Does anyone have a clue on how to overcome this problem?
