So having had to add the new Chrome extension I can no longer connect to my slingbox. I have removed Chrome, slingbox and reloaded them. Nope still same error after the initialization and in the pop up box. When trying to connect in either pop up or main window after trying to connect I get an error message - "There was an error connecting to the box".
The slingbox works on IE but no longer full screen.
Why issue a forced update that does not work on the platform and restricts viewing.
