Hi, I'm also feeling pretty hacked off with Slinbox right now. Spent £18 for the ipad app a couple of days ago then went to PC World today and bought a brand new Slingbox Pro for £190, only to find it doesn't work because the software doesn't support some of the products they make. What a waste of money! I'd like to know if compatible software is coming later or have I just bought a discontinued model. No mention of that in the store. Is there a sensibly price trade in offer I wonder? Looks like I've just bought an expensive door stop!
Hi sagitter112, the SOLO and the PRO-HD have the necessary horsepower to utilize the latest streaming technologies which Apple uses for it's devices using iOS 4.2.
The older Slingbox hardware will not work with this newer streaming technology.
