Forget the web slingplayer plug-in for now...
Get Silngplayer Desktop instead
- 1.0 for Mac http://support.slingbox.com/go/dl-mac-desktop
- 1.5 for PC http://support.slingmedia.com/get/sp1-win-us.html
- 2.0 for PC http://support.slingbox.com/go/windows-download-desktop-us
Btw, while these server issues exist, don't use 2.0 since its dependant on Sling Accounts.
What happens when you try upgraduing to IE7 or IE8 or IE9 for that matter?
It clearly states on Sling Media's website that IE7 is required in the minimum computer specs as seen here:MINIMUM COMPUTER AND NETWORK RECOMMENDATIONS - WINDOWSNetwork & BandwidthHD Streaming: 3 Mbps or higher*SD Streaming: 600 Kbps or higherMobile Streaming: 150 Kbps or higherMinimum PC RequirementsHD Streaming: Intel 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo class processor or equivalent with 2 GB of RAM; Video acceleration support desirable on graphics card*SD Streaming: Pentium 4 class or equivalent with 256 MB RAMOperating System: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 with latest updatesBrowser Support: Internet Explorer Version 7 or higher, Firefox Version 3 or higher
