I am in Jakarta, Indonesia and my Slingbox 500 is in Houston, Texas. My internet speed in Indonesia is around 40 mbps and the speed in Houston is over 50 mbps.
But every time i watch something using Slingbox the picture is blurry and pixelated as if it was being watched on a bandwidth of 2 mbps. This is true whether watching on a phone, a Kindle Fire, a computer or through the TV wifi direct.
I thought this was normal and that slingbox was just a **** product. But i went to a couple of friend's houses here in Jakarta this past week and their Slingbox picture from the US was crystal clear. The picture was awesome; I couldn't believe it!
What things might be causing my picture to be so awful? What things should I check if bandwidth is already great on both ends?
