These ***** losers at sling don't care. I tried everything to get a resolution and it's gone ignored. Their software is very limited and there are no security controls. These ***** won't even acknowledge that this happens. We will make sure EVERYONE at BestBuy and Amazon knows in the customer reviews and on Twitter. I bet they give a response then.

I've had my Slingbox for years and it has worked as expected. Just recently while watching television in my home office, I noticed the Slingbox turn on, get connected with a user and then the channels started changing on my television. I immediately called my older kids and asked if they were using it. They were not. I changed my password and within a couple of hours someone was again connected to my Slingbox. I've had to power down the unit or disconnect it from the network to keep the intruders out. This morning, I went into the office and the Slingbox was connected to someone. How can this happen when the password has just been changed? Is there any possibility of my home network being hacked through the Slingbox?
