iPad Slingplayer app released - for Pro-HD and Solo models
Doesn't work with the Slingbox Pro. Only with the Pro-HD and Solo models
I don't have a slingbox and was waiting for the app to be released.
Those that gave a one star rating have the Pro box and obviously were disapointed. Those with Pro-HD boxes gave the app a five star rating.
I'd like some feedback about the usage over 3G (the app description does say it works over 3G).
Does it work well, or do you need to find a wifi connection to get smooth iPad res video quality?
Works with the 922 - yay! Kind of yay, anyway
I'm pleased and surprised that the app works with the Dish 922 receiver. I had my doubts, but it really seems to work ok. MY problem, however, is that my DSL service can't meet the minum 500 kbs UPload speed - mine tops out at about 380 - so I get stuttering in the playback. Even when I use their web application I get stuttering.
AT8T doesn't have their U-verse fiberoptic coverage in my area (it's two blocks over, but not in my area of LA), and Verizon isn't in my city at all... grrrr... Been waiting for over a year for AT&T to get their act together, and have pretty much lost hope - I think my only option is to go with Time-warner Cable - which seems silly when I have Dish for tv...
So... mostly sort of happy, but it isn't the iPad's or Sling's or even Dish's fault. It actually does work fine on my own network at home - so I can watch tv outside if I want - just not off the network.
