    crism76

      Hi, I have  a Slingbox pro in Romania that I am watching it in USA. It is an USA model but it's using the EUR 1.5 SlingPlayer version for UK. The image that I receive is not great ( not more then 800-1000kbps ) even if in both countries I have high speed Internet. I have a message from the SlingPlayer that it ask me to upgrade ( recommended ) for the version 2.0.0. but I read on some web sites that this can do some damage for me ( I will not be able to see anything after that and that once upgraded you cannot downgrade the version. This is a problem for me because eve if I don't see the quality that I want I don't wanna lose what I have. I tried to ask on the support line but they told me that they won't help me because the Slingbox is in Romania, not in USA. I tried UK but without luck.

       

      What do you think I shoud do?!!!

       

      Thank you,

      Cris

          You can have both versions installed.  Here's the trick to do it.

           

          1.  Copy the "Slingplayer" folder within the "Sling Media" directory

          2.  Give the copy a unique name like "Slingplayer.15"

          3.  Then uninstall Slingplayer 1.5

          4   Install Slingplayer 2.0

          5,  Now make a shortcut for the slingplayer.exe from Slingplayer.15 folder.

           

          Now you can have a choice between using Slingplayer 1.5 or 2.0 whenever you want.
