TI Needs Slingbox Assistance… August 25, 2007

Posted by Tell it like it TI is! in 0x8007274c, Slingbox.
trackback

PTIers, Not sure what happened. After what seemed to be a great pnp experience with Slingbox, and Slingbox Mobile (on the PPC 6700, of course), I can no longer get the thing to work on a consistent basis.  Not sure what happened??  Same router, same settings on the router, same phone, same software, all of a sudden I can’t seem to connect consistently, and recently I am not getting a connection at all!  The only thing that I can thing of is some issue with the Vonage adapter, but can’t quite figure this out.  

I am not even able to connect with computers on my home network! I keep getting the following message, “The connection attempt failed. Make sure the slingbox you are trying to watch is on, set up for remote viewing, and not blocked by firewall/NAT settings.   Error 0x8007274c”.   Do any of the PTIers know of some router settings that I might have overlooked?  Are there any adjustments that I have to make due to the Vonage connection?  Help me out.  I need my Slingbox!  It worked almost flawlessly for so long and I can’t think of what may have caused it to stop working!

I have the exact same experience. I have had a perfect Slingbox and then one day – same error. I tried everything on the router to fix it and no dice. Problem is the same at work, on unsecured neighborhood wireless networks 😉 and anywhere I tried it. All started when I did the recent upgrade. Horrible.

My slingbox is so unreliable now that I hardly ever watch it. You are right, I went from perfect… connection every time… to I haven’t seen a connection in weeks!! What is up with this? I have two solid lights on the unit, I have gone through the setup procedure several times, and nothing.

The Slingbox is almost as useless as National Championship tickets at the University of Michigan this year!!!!

Hey, Just Telling It Like It Is!!!!!

Do any of you have VOIP with an additional phone router between the cable modem and your wireless router? If so, that might be the problem. But it’s fixable.

The connection attempt failed. Make sure the sling box you are trying to watch is on, set up for remote viewing, and not blocked by firewall/NAT settings.
