    Setting up slingbox solo not going well at all


      So, I had recently purchased the slingbox solo and I am having a very difficult time setting the thing up.  I got all my cables set up correctly, have 2 solid lights, and when I try to connect through the slingplayer software, a window pops up saying that "There was a problem communicating with the Slingbox. Try connecting again."  So I have done hard resets and nothing changes at all.  Tech support didn't do squat, they just blamed my computer.  Tried on another computer, no good.  Tried disabling my firewall, nothing new.  Also, under the slingbox directory, it recognizes an unconfigured slingbox and is able to give me the slingbox id #.  When I try to set up online, it requests the admin password, which I have no idea what it is.  I just made one password for the email login and nothing else.  I'm missing my baseball post-season games because of this bad luck, which was the primary reason for purchasing one.  Any help would be greatly appreciated
