Just a thought, do you have port forwarding (port mapping on some devices) setup on your router or dsl/cable modem? If you are sure you do and have viewed your Slingbox from outside your home before, then maybe it's possible that your ISP was down while you were away. I have found that remote viewing will absolutely not work without forwarding the appropriate port to the Slingbox device. If you need assistance on port forwarding, try a google search. There are a lot of good guides available for specific routers/modems. I believe the Slingbox defaults to using port 5001. Thanks.
I have the same problem. The player locates my sling boxes and connects, but when it gets to start it only moves to optimizing about 10% of the time. The times it moves forward are random. I have port forwarding setup on the router. Connecting with a pc works as well as connecting from my android phone.
Hi, mwindeler and all.
We recommend you all to check and adjust some router settings. Just make sure to edit the rule for the Slingbox on your router and use both of the protocols (UDP and TCP). Then, make sure to reconfigure your Slingbox for Internet Viewing.
FOUND the problem here guys. It turns out that the iphone app, installed also on the ipad in an early version, was causing the problem. When i uninstalled the old versioof the iphone app and installed again the iphone app but with the new version instead, the ipad app, installed again afterwards (i ve removed both ), worked fine on the login screen.
Best regards to everybody.
Ok i ll explain again. In my case i had an iphone app installed on the ipad
That was not updated ( i think it was version 1.0). So all i had
To do was to uninstall both, ipad and iphone app.
Then i ve installed the iphone app first, in the updated version
Available in the App store, then installed the ipad app again.
And voila... All worked fine . There was something in the old iphone version app
That was preventing the ipad App to connect. Got it now?
