    Pro-HD is terrible at home

    kalagroup

      I had the original slingbox since it came out.

      It always worked well, so I decided to upgrade to the Pro-HD.

      It is terrible.

      I have to run in the control mode to make it usable at all, but it is still bad.

       

      The video stutters and stops.

       

      I have tried it on 2 different computers, laptop IBM t43 and Supermicro dual processor.

      I have gig e connections and router.

       

      I did live chat with sling and they said it played fine on the internet.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks

          What's streaming statistics, you can check it [Alt]+[Shift]+[i] from the Slingplayer Desktop.

           

          Gotta make sure your laptop meets the minimum requirements for the resolution.

          HD Streaming: Intel 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo class  processor or equivalent with 2 GB of RAM. Video acceleration support  desirable on graphics card
          SD Streaming: Pentium 4 class or equivalent  with 256 MB RAM
