My Slingbox Pro worked great for a long time... It even worked on the android mobile app. I don't use it often, but the last time i tried to show off to a friend by changing the station on my wife while we laughed at her from the other room, it would not connect. Through much experimenting, i have found the SlingPlayer continues to work great through a direct ip connection, but not if the finderid exists... In the sling player if I create a new connection without the finder id and use the direct public or private ip, it works like a champ.
The sling site does list my slingbox, but the connection does not work... Same on my phone. Im guessing if I could use an IP from either of these two places it would work great.
Any ideas what would be causing this?
First, we recommend you to check if your Slingbox is properly set. Just make sure to test the connection from a different network.
If it works, the following link will provide you with the information about the connection options the Slingbox offers to you.
