the link that Sling provided did NOT answer your question. I believe you were not asking about pictue quality but simply not working
I have the same problem when I travel every year. After about 10 days- two weeks of working properly....it stops working completely.
- Error: 0x8007274c
- Context: 1
No one is at home using computer. Therefor there is no one tjhat is able to unplug or reset. There must be something that can be done before
I leave home on each trip over two weeks long to prevent this from happening.
My ISP is TimeWarner on a cable (not DSL). Time Warner tells me the IP address changes from time to time & this could be the
I do not know enough about computer things so I have no idea on how to prevent this from happening EVERY time I travel.
After all, the SlingBox is supposed to be for people that travel & have a high speed connection...which I always do.
On my most recent trip I actually hard wired the ethernet cable from SlingBox to Router....worked fine for a week then same ole problem.
Any suggestions...HELP....getting ready for another trip.
FOLLOW UP 06/02/2011: Before my most recent 2 month trip I boutht a new router & have a direct ethernet cable
from Sling to Router THEN I added an on/off timer to the modem. It powers off nightly just after midnight &
back on 3minutes later. IT WORKED FOR 2 MONTHS!!!
Previous tries which did not work included connecting the on/off timer to the router instead of the modem.
I actually do not know if this new timerl-connection to the modem instead of router solved the problem
or the new router did??? I don't care which as long as it's working now.
My ISP TimeWarner gives me a dynamic conneciton (changes randomly, often around the week-2weeks) & when this happens
I've been told the router would no longer communicate with modem's new ip adress. I'm not sure why the on/off modem cycle
helps this communication now but it seems they are "reading" each other.
Pardon my terminolgy but I'm not a geek...wish I were...or could be. It's always a learning process. This **** SlingBox
problem has been going on since I first got my Sling A/V in 2007 (I think) so u can imagine this FIX is more than welcome!
