    Slingbox PRO-HD - Powering Off - Bad Capacitors?

    test123321

      I purchased my Slingbox PRO-HD back in 2012 and had used it maybe 10 times since then. I haven't used it in the last year. When I went to use it I found it powered off but all connections were good. I unplugged the power and plugged it back in and the lights came back on, but only for about 10 seconds and then it powered itself back off. This happens every time I plug it in and after some research online, it seems alot of people have had this problem caused by bad capacitors.

       

      For example: http://placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/forum/general-sling-box-discussions/slingbox-hd-suddently-powers-off/

       

      Does anyone know if Slingbox has a replacement program for these even when the devices are outside of warranty? I hesitate to replace the device if the next one is just going to die again...

       

      Thanks,

      Eric
