Slingbox for tablets or Slingbox mobile.
« on: September 07, 2012, 09:02:59 PM »
I broke down and bought a SB solo for football season. The thing is I bought the SB tablet app which was 30 dollars and the stream won't run without constant stutter when on hd. The other standard definition setting plays better but still is choppy. I tried the SB mobile app for another 30bucks but it didn't have hd but streamed better it seemed. I  returned it because I was already stuck with the one for tablets. Anyone with experience with getting this running right? I I was thinking maybe it's my Internet connection but netflix and YouTube run fine.
Thanks for any help!

I figured it out. Bluetooth speaker connection strikes again! As soon as I turn the speaker off slingbox runs great.

Am I understanding you to say that you were required to buy the mobile version AND the tablet version separately at $29,.99 each?  I have it on my Android phone and also my iPad (which was a separate purchase due to different store fronts I was told) but I was hoping the Nexus would install the same Android version or at least use the same purchased license.  Sling doesn't make it easy to like them, do they?

You have 15 minutes to test the app with the ability to return it. It was too late by the time I set up the first one. Luckily, I  figured it out myself without having to go thru them. I have heard that Slingbox customer service is atrocious.
