It sounds as if you are using the SlingTV application instead of the SlingPlayer application. They are easy to get confused. A good way to tell if you are using the correct application is to look at it. If it's completely red with white circles, , then you have the correct one and there is definitely something going on. I would recommend Uninstalling the channel and re-installing it, in that case.
I've been a long time user of Slingbox, watching it on my iPad, and on my Mac. I am now trying to watch my slingbox on my Amazon Fire TV, but I keep getting error 2-16 - email or password is incorrect - when I try to log in. Is there a different account that has to be set up for the Amazon Fire TV SlingTV app? According to the Sling website, I am supposed to be able to view my slingbox broadcast content on my Fire TV app, but there's no indication on the site of what I might be doing wrong. From: Slingbox.com - Slingplayer for Amazon Fire TV FAQ
- Free Slingplayer in Fire TV app store
- Watch and control all your live TV
- Access your program guide and DVR
- Supports up to HD video
- Works with Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick
I did notice that when I try to go to slingtv.com to login, my slingbox credentials don't work there either. I don't want to pay for SlingTV right now - just watch the broadcast from my slingbox on my Fire TV app. Thanks in advance.
