    Solution to advertisements (ads) on desktop player

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I have been slinging since its inception ... Classic lasted for years, then to Solo ... which I still have and it suffices for my use. I will be upgrading soon. Regarding ads ... I have had every version of the software for both my laptops, iPads and smartphones.  I love my Slingbox!  However, the new online "Watch" and Desktop versions are plagued with unwanted ads ... unless you go full screen.  The solution is to use truly the very best version of the desktop software, version 2.0.4 522 Global.   I have a brand new Lenovo Yoga 900 with Windows 10. This desktop software version has worked with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.  I just finished downloading a fresh version and it works like a charm.  Here's the link to Place Shifting Enthusiasts.   SlingPlayer Downloads – Place Shifting Enthusiasts  Use the 2.0.4 522 Global version. Be sure to uninstall your current desktop software first.  I have no idea if it will work with Slingboxes newer than Solo, but it's worth a try!
