Hi, This is MrSling at SlingMedia. I'll be here taking questions and providing info on Sling products June 22 & 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
Apple has made some decisions about how video is received by the iPad. We'll be completely compatible with those requirements.
That said, any business must continue to grow and the the television provider market is huge and ready for value-added services like placeshifting. We simply can't ignore that opportunity.
I bought my SPM from the The Sling Media Store for my WinMobile HTC Diamond. Now that I've upgraded to HTC EVO, I want to transfer my key. However, SPM for Android is not available via Sling Media Store - it's only available on Android market. So now I'm forced to re-purchase SPM because Sling is not offering the Android app through it's own Sling Media Store. Have I followed this path correctly?
When are we going to see a SingPlayer for OS X that supports HD?
Why do the current versions of SlingPlayer for Windows and OS X not allow you to connect to the DishNetwork 922? Older versions work fine with it (at least in SD quality) and even include the remote for it. So it's rather odd that it refuses to work with it. On top of this the mobile SlingPlayers work with it fine. So it's obvious that you can do this but have chosen to disable the software for some reason. Rather disappointing when a product is advertised as having a built in SlingBox when it doesn't behave like a SlingBox.
I wish we could use the built in Slingbox in our 922 like a regular Slingbox. I want to use my Slingplayer application, not be forced to login to DISH Network's website each time.
Because of this limitation the 922 is a major disapointment for us Sling fans.
a) You can't arbitrarily adjust the size of the picture.
b) If you put the screen into full screen mode and then click out of the app it removes the size. Which stinks for those of us with multiple monitors.
c) No always on top mode.
d) No way to configure transmission rates.
and a variety of other reasons...
Finally, no you can't watch a 922 from slingbox.com:
Your DISH Network ViP®922 SlingLoaded™ DVR can only be watched on DISH Remote Access and your compatible mobile device. Please log-in to www.dishnetwork.com and click on DISH Remote Access link.
DISH Networks' site requires that you log into the same account you use to make changes to your account, etc... Which makes giving that info out to family members (e.g. kids) untenable.
Your reasons for not wanting to use the WBSP are valid and I can tell you we know about those issues. We're working now to correct most all of your points. This is ongoing development and I think you're going to like the results.
