    SlingPlayer 2.0.4.521 and Windows 10 audio lag

      I have found a work-around to make SlingPlayer 2.0.4.521 work for Windows 10 which I guess will also work for Windows 8. It is not perfect, but significantly improves things.

      Find the file SBCore.ini

      which is probably in C:\ProgramData\Sling Media\SlingPlayer\2.0 or

      C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Sling Media\SlingPlayer

      Do a search if you are not sure. If the file exists in more than one place, find the one which is active.

      Edit the file and find the line PrechargeTime=5 and change the 5 (or whatever value is) to 0.

      PrechargeTime=0

      This seems to cure the audio delay.

      However, excessive use of the remote control can cause the problem to reoccur.

      I also tried this modification in SlingPlayer 1.5 but unfortunately I could not get it to work.
