    New slingplayer for Chrome (1.16) update "error connecting"

    ACC487161

      First, I was redirected to a download page without so much as an explanation as to what was going on, and I was very suspicious that I was downloading something malicious. None of my other Chrome plugins get updated via a web page.

       

      More importantly, now I can't connect to my slingbox. I get "there was an error connecting to the box" and a refresh button. No error code, nothing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the extension. I have rebooted my machine. I am running Windows 8.1 and Chrome 42.0.2311.90 m

       

      While the threads here don't seem to discuss this problem, one look at the ratings in the chrome extension store shows that I am not the only person to have this problem.
