I used it last December and it sucked horribly.....so I waited a while and tried again this week and it does not connect to my Slingbox no matter how many different methods I use. I found some of your suggestions regarding port forwarding which is poppycock or it would affect the plethora of other devices we use our Slingboxes with, and it does not.
So what is the verdict? Will the Slingplayer on Chromecast always suck?
Do you intend to fix the problems or ignore the issue as you have up until this point?
