I just got a Slingbox M1 yesterday, thinking that would be a good solution to get TV from a sattelite receiver in a window in the corner of my desktop PC's screen.
But there are some things that I'm not happy with, and I hope to get help solving them.
1. My satellite receiver is a Metronic 441601, but that model is not in the model list. I have tried all Metronic satellite receivers in the list, but none of them seem to work. Is there a way to get my receiver added to the list?
2. I can't seem to find a way to make a window with just the TV picture on it, and I can't get the player to always be on top. Is there a way to do this?
And then there are the commercials. Very annoying.
3. If there is no internetconnection I can't start the Slingplayer. Both the Slingbox and my computer are on my local cabled network, and I would like at least be able to watch TV from the satellite receiver if the internet connection is down. Is there a way to make it work if internet connection is down?
