Further update - having read a few more posts there is a common theme of firewalls causing an issue. I have Mcafee total protection 2011 running. However, I have tried turning off the firewall temporarily and restarting the slingbox setup. The network light went off again when I got to the password screen, but this time it let me past. Onto the input configuration - chose composite, sat box, sky/sky HD and then just when it looked like I was making progress, I got another error saying the connection to the slingbox was lost and changes I had made could not be saved. Hope this helps someone in the know to work out my issue. ps apologies if this was logged in the wrong section
The Slingbox discovers an unconfigured device, asks "Do I want to configure"? I select "yes", the setup assistant box appears - - - - but it is BLANK... Now I call the tech-support, thinking they could assist, but I get a run around. Has anyone experienced this problem. I am using the latest Slingplayer version (downloaded today), O/S is XP Service Pack 3.
