The setup worked just fine including linking to the Slingbox account but once I tried to set up for internet viewing it just wouldn't work. In my case it's because I've got three routers set up in a "Y type" series (the one from FIOS which is then connected to two more routers in a Y type link) & there's no way (according to Slingbox support) to open the necessary ports to forward from one router to the next unless I turn the router the slingbox is hooked up to into a bridge.
Since I really wanted it to access my DVR/Cable when on the road it's really not working for me. I just wish I'd known that before I'd laid out the $30 for the ipad app but I don't blame Slingbox for that since my setup isn't a common one.
I would estimate that if you've got only one router, or one it just set as a bridge it would work fine but I've got the set up I've got so that I can isolate a work network from a family one (i.e. with NAT on each router a person on the office router can't access the family router computers & vice versa [Done this way to keep records on the office computer confidential & to keep viruses my kids might get on their computers off the office system})for security reasons so I can't change that configuration.
Oh well, it's a nice device but if you've got a complex LAN setup it may not work for you for internet viewing either.
It is bad enough to have to watch 20 minutes per hour of commercials on TV. As the commercial that they force you to watch before the Slingbox player launches, and the ads that distract the viewing experience for short shows you may spend time looking at commercial content more than the show itself. For me this makes my Slingbox unusable.
So I'm ditching Slingbox and looking now for another solution.
The setup concept is supposed to be simple. Plug the slingbox into your router at home, go to slingbox.com, create an account and you will be able to see and setup your slingbox.
That's the concept. After about 6 hours of powering off the slingbox, powering off the DSL mode, powering off my computer, reseting the slingbox, trying IE and Firefox I finally got it setup.
Very frustrating for a supposed plug and play device.
I was still having intermitment connection problems and slingbox release a software update for the slingbox.
I thought great, they solved these problems and will update it. So I followed the steps to update the slingbox software version and it rebooted. Then I start getting the message "Cannot find your slingbox". I follow their FAQ and steps, reboot everything again, power down again, etc. etc. That never worked so I did a hard reset on the unit which erases the configuration and forces you to go through the setup process again. Remember how my first setup round went? Now the browser still cannot see the slingbox.
I've read such bad reviews about their telephone support and the 90 day thing so I hesitated until the last effort to call them.
First of all, overseas call center. So if you like speaking to people that have a basic understanding of the English language, you'll be happy.
Then, the tech says, "sounds like you've done everything to troubleshoot this on your own so we'll be glad to offer you a replacement unit". I think, great, that was simple. They I think wait a minute and ask "will this be a new unit like I just purchased or a refurbished." To wish he responded, and yes you guessed it, "a refurbished unit." So after investing about 12 hours into trying to get this thing running, spending $300 for a new unit, I now get somebody else's refurbished broken piece of junk.
I explained that i just paid for a new unit and the unit failed and that I would like them to replace it with an in kind new unit.
He cheerfully said, "Sir, we would be glad to send you a new unit at a 20% discount off the purchase price, and you can keep your existing unit you do not need to send it back." I was stunned and asked "So you are telling me after not even getting through the setup process, you want to charge me $250+ to get a new working unit to replace the broken one I have now."
Buyer beware, this product is not ready for prime time.
Wait or get a different manufacturer.
The Android application costs an additional $30 to view the Slingbox but it's pretty optimized for the device so I don't mind it. It simply doesn't work in a browser for non-traditional devices to include the PlayStation 3. However, on a PC it is perfect! In fact you can view it in hi-def 1080i (wish there was a way for 1080p however, but due to the component cables that's not possible). There is a slight delay on the phone, but none on the PC. It is a bit worse video on the Android app but for its small screen, it's better quality than even FloTV I think (plus it fills the full widescreen of your phone!).
Anyway, I love this piece of gadgetry and its uses, especially for on the go, but also for the fact that I can watch anywhere in my house without getting other DVRs. The Slingbox Pro HD is the perfect system to allow you to control and watch your DVR broadcasts just as you would in front of your TV.
