I reset the slingbox and on safari, I click "add a new slingbox",
it finds it, updates the software, slingbox name and password but then when it starts to stream to setup the cable box it stops and restarts setup again...can't get pass that. I didn't change anything but the update, don't know how to fix I tried setting up on windows in internet explorer and I get the same problem.
Some one please help.
this definitely has to do with 64 bit. the new unibody macs quad core and new duals run in 64 bit mode, you can see this if you go to the apple and click "about this mac" then click on "more info" then click "software" in the left side of the window that opens and look to the right you will see "64-bit kernal extensions" Yes or No, you will see if you are in 64 bit mode. if you want your sling to operate correctly you need to be in 32 bit mode unfortunately. this is a problem with the software not apple or mac, sling needs a update badly.
the fix for this is to boot into 32 bit mode by holding down the "3" and "2" keys when starting your machine, then going thru the same way to find 64 bit you should now see "No" in the 64 bit extensions area.
your sling will run fine in 32 bit mode but you will lose the speed of 64 bit mode but your sling will work. this fix works for many apps that crash your machine or just crash the app in 64. its unfortunate but hardware manufacturers are notoriously slow updating their software and lazy.
hope this helps
