Should I be seeing a picture quality difference between the two? They are both HD version and the pro looks nice and sharp. For example when in the IPG guide on my cable box, it looks sharper and easy to ready, but on the solo it's blurry. I've verified the component cable are hook up right.
Try to change "encoding parameter" in the Slingplayer\Settings\slingbox options\Encoding. Choose 1920X540 instead of automatic in the Internet access. If you have enough internet speed, the image quality will be much sharper.
