I'm using Sling Player 2.0 for Windows and a PRO-HD. The first time I tried playing with the manual bitrate setting, I set the video bitrate to 1024 kbps and it worked as advertised. Now every time I try to go in to adjust it, it keeps "snapping back" to 1024. I tried uninstalling/re-installing Sling Player, set the bitrate to 800 kbps, clicked "Apply", and closed out of "Options". I went right back to check it, and the setting was back at 1024. Has anyone else seen this phenomenon? Ideas re: how to fix it?
I recommend to use the Automatic option and check if you are getting a very poor stream rate. Also, give it a try to Watch at Slingbox.com and check if you have any video issues. If you are experiencing quality issues with the video, check this out,
