"Works great with SlingBox HD"

November 19, 2012  |  By wtarchala

 |  Version: SlingPlayer 2.0.3508

Pros

Works great with Slingbox HD and Vista 64-bit.

Cons

Unfortunately, it comes with some malware embedded to CNET downloader. To be precise, cbsidlm-tr1_8-SlingPlayer-SEO2-10573277.exe file has coupon companion.exe embedded that can mess up your system badly. Luckily, my Norton blocked it.

"Sling is a Ripoff"

April 04, 2011  |  By Comotoes

 |  Version: SlingPlayer 2.0.3508

Pros

It worked great for a few months after I bought the "Tuner" model - that is, until I downloaded their "update" and they quit providing free service.

Cons

My Slingbox Tuner hasn't worked for years - since the first time I downloaded their "update" after they stopped providing free technical service. I think they're a scam that just keeps you throwing $$ at them to keep their product functional.

Summary

Stay away unless you plan to give them $30/yr for their "service".

"Recently, I have had no problems with viewing."

July 09, 2010  |  By Vernfix

 |  Version: SlingPlayer 2.0.3508

Pros

It works very well, and have not had any problems Only occasional frame skips.

Cons

I am very happy with this product, and can't think of anything derogatory to say. The internet is not perfect, but Sling Player is way above only acceptable. I use it every day, sometimes just listening to news while working on my computer..........

Summary

I have had a sling player for years, and over that time period I had many problems watching remotely. But with the current software I have not had any problems, even when I have a slower than optimum connection to the internet. I frequently use the Verizon web connection, run thru a Cradlepoint router, and still get a good picture.One trick I can use, if my connection is quite slow, is to let the player run for a few minutes and then back up a little bit. This seems to eliminate skips . I can use it while working on my computer, just listening to music or news in the background.
