    Connecting to SlingBox with MAC


      I have had a slingbox pro HD for about two years and 6 months ago my mac stopped being able to connect to watch.slingbox.com. When I connect it says and error has occured do you want to retry.  The weird part about this is I can connect from a windows pc or an iphone without a problem.  I have the lastest firmware installed on my slingbox.  Is there anyone that has any clue why this is happening?

          Sounds like you will need to call them and pay them to fish into your comp.. think i need to do the same thing... keeps asking me to upgrade EVEN after i did the upgrade

              I am having the same problem.  When I go through VMWare and Windows 7 via the slingplayer software I have no issues and can get download speeds of over 2mbs.  However going through firefox and Slingbox.com on my Mac (brand new) all I get is W202 errors.  And yes, the mobile version in my ipad seems to work fine.   This seems to be a Slingbox.com issue to me.  Any ideas?

                  I have a similar problem. I cannot connect to my Slingbox via the new browser based client for Mac. I can connect just fine via the Sling Player mobile apps for iPhone and iPad.  I'm on 10.6.6 and I have set Safari to 32bit mode prior to doing this.
