    Slow Bitrate remote viewing


      I have been doing a lot of research on here and other sites. I have a slingbox solo, mac book pro/ laptop pc, linksys router, sling links.  I am having slow bitrates ( mid 200's) when i remote view. I have tried the desktop version and web version on mac, web version on pc with the same results. I tried to use both wireless, and hardline connections.  I tried to check/change the port forwarding but it did not help. I reset my slingbox a couple of times after that, along with doing new set ups for the desktop versions. I am getting 1000-2000 bitrates when i connect locally. I also sometimes get a lag between audio and video. i did a test of the remote view internet connection and it seems fine.

          update, i updated my firmware on my router. i made sure the port forwarding is to both. i set up the Qos to priority.  i get wild varying bitrates on my home network. it goes from 300 and climbs to 3000 then goes back down or kick me off.  remote is holding steady around 280 on both mac and pc..   anyone ?

              I am having the exact same issue.  I had no issues for months after purchasing the Solo and watching remotely overseas.  I normally would stream around 1800kbs average remotely.  About three weeks ago, streaming via the webplayer began to max out at 250kbs. I also logged on from other locations using PC's and other ISP's.  No matter where I was, I could no longer stream above 250kbs.  The strange thing about it was that my Destop Slingplayer for Mac would work just as fine as always streaming around 1800kbs.  Starting yesterday, that quit as well.  I can no longer stream above 250kbs no matter where I attempt to do so.  Please help.  This is either a box issue with remote veiwing overseas or something else as I've tried from many locations to no avail.  I have also paid the $50 for customer service and they have yet to come up with a solution.
