I bought the Slingbox 500 as a genuine refurbished box from Newegg.ca. On logging in online, I get a message that it was activated in Apr 2014 and is out of warranty. The refurbished machine is supposed to be wiped clean - doesn't look like it has been.
What do I do to correct this? There are several other issues which may be connected to the refurbished state.I paid for Slingplayer and have activated the account, yet getting lots of ads on it - what I assume is malware - Installfaster for example. It is pernicious. How do I get rid of these messages? Clicking the x gives me messages in what I assume is Spanish, and I don't understand it, so don't want it inadvertently installed.
I can't get to watch it at the moment - going round in circles.
