external ROUTER port open? port forwarding is 5001 bi-directionally both TCP and UDP
set up a static IP address
able to PING your slingbox from your laptop?
also make sure QoS and RTSP settings are ON (governs bandwidth)
The Av does perform OK down to about 1150Kb/s
but its gets spotty down to about 600Kb/s
and I have used my router with CIR control to test that below 500Kbits its useless
even on Composite, with web client set for absolute MINIMAL setup
currently I am having issues with this 6yr old AV and video speckle noise
and its related to poor board electrolytic caps and originals
really crappy switchmode powersupply. I have already found at least two sketchy
components and one 'lytic that was starting to leak. (36yr vet ElecTech)
other than that , this design is great and the way in which the Slingbox was
designed is brilliant; they did make some econo choices here and there
but there is no other system that works so transparently, like slingbox
update : digging around later today,
yup found two caps as defects with my leak checker and then replaced.
geez. I found the one cold joint that fixed my speckles and now the AV is good.
The original production soldering is not clean; I think this was an early RoHS board(not sure).
I suspect the original wall wart ACDC was improperly underrated. Power brick is
Hon Kwang 6V rated 2.4peak, 2.0A and like 5% ripple, but I fixed that as well with
a quick power Inductor inline-series mod; that brick is throwing serious S/mode noise;
thrice typical normal level on my ELF RFmeter.
Solo AV unit is only drawing some 7watts or so(? less than half! 6x2.4peak= 14.4w peak);
I am going to try and find some better wall wart AC for sure.
Drew: I know it does not help, but some *browser* issues can block the SlingBox Web client
like I had to tell AdBlock to shut up and so on, so multiple things can block the AV from streaming
but I would also look at the client itself as well.
