Slingbox Stopped Working April 21, 2008

Posted by Fast Follower in Slingbox.

All of a sudden Slingbox quit working.  I cannot figure out why.  It’s practically driving me crazy.  I can’t sling on the network in my house.  And I can’t mobile sling.  Any suggestions?

TI Needs Slingbox Assistance… August 25, 2007

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

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!

Slingbox Broadcast on PSP… Come on PTIers, I know you have the solution! November 16, 2006

Posted by Tell it like it TI is! in Slingbox, Sony PSP.

OK, folks. After my long saga with the 700wx, I finally got rid of it and I now have the Sprint PPC 6700. I have to admit, although the look takes a little getting used to, it WORKS. Yesterday, I finally got to hook up my slingbox. I installed the mobile slingplayer, and I am watching my Satellite TV, and TIVO recordings on my phone!! I will tell you the PPC 6700’s larger screen does come in handy.

Now that I have resolved that, l have another issue that I would like to conquer. How do I get my Slingbox to work with my son’s PSP? The PSP is Wifi, but there does not seem to be any mobile software developed for the PSP. This would save me (and my son 12 year old son) a lot of cheese! If he can get the slingbox to work with the PSP, I would be the “Father of the Year”!

I was also trying to understand if the LocationFree device would work with the WM5 Smartphone. Although, the LocationFree device would have to be pretty simple to beat the Slingbox installation. I gotta tell you all, I was expecting a lot of issues. Everything worked right out of the box….Slingbox wins the “Right Out of the Box” award for me!

Let me hear from you PTIers…
