I have a SlingBox Pro set up back home in Virginia. I am in Florida and so far this year I have been able to access my slingbox, but I am having a problem with it freezing. It plays for maybe 5 or 7 minutes and then it goes into a "optimizing" mode and it will freeze untill I turn off the slingplayer and turn it back on. This makes it damn near inporrible to watch tv shows I have DVR'd and it also makes watching football games painful.
At first I thought the problem might be on my end since we just switched to Verizon Fios but after doing some research a lot of people have had this problem regardless of provider or where they are located.
I have changed the "configuration" time from the default setting to "14 seconds" but so far it has not made a difference.
Have any of you that have the Slingbox had this problem? If so how did you fix it? From the stuff I read online so far it looks like the problem is one that the tech staff and slingbox HQ had before and they could not come up with a solution. The best response I have seen so far is they just said it was a "hardware malfunction"
I really like my slingbox and love being able to watch local games and tv, but assuming this is a problem that can not be fixed do I have any other alternatives. I have the pro version and to the best of my knowedfe the only one above this is the PRO HD, which I would assume would have the same problem.
