I have been a Slingbox user since the early 2000s. However, I must admit, I understand very little to nothing about the technical aspects of how it works. I am OK with computers, but not a technical person. Here's my problem though ... Slingbox was once a fantastic product for me. Over the years, it has declined to the point that it is unusable. In the early 2000s I had excellent picture quality, flexible viewing options, never had lost signals. Now? Picture quality is terrible, there is little flexibility in resizing the screen and moving it around in a multiple monitor environment, and I am constantly having to reconnect, constantly. And Slingbox has gotten worse, as my hardware had greatly improved. What was once just a B router, migrated to G, then A, then N .... and I am probably 4 or 5 computers away from my initial experience using slingbox, so processors and RAM are vastly greater than initial use .... YET, all the time, my slingbox experience did nothing but decline. I got to the point years ago that I simply stopped using it.
I want to use Slingbox again. I have a SOLO. I want it to work. BUT, I have a lousy picture, limited screen size flexibility and constant reconnect issues.
Can someone PLEASE point me to the best resources/articles that I could use to troubleshoot and try to locate the technical issues that cause problems? I have tried using their website, knowledge base to do this, but that was a miserable experience as well.
