iPad Slingplayer app released - for Pro-HD and Solo models
This is a discussion on iPad Slingplayer app released - for Pro-HD and Solo models within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; As soon as I bought the Sling app, which WASN'T as supporting my 922 Sling receiver, but seemed to work anyway - Dish came out ...
I "returned" the Sling app when Dish came out with their own...
As soon as I bought the Sling app, which WASN'T as supporting my 922 Sling receiver, but seemed to work anyway - Dish came out with one specifically for the 922. It works well, but I STILL can't watch it on my iPad off the network (that is, when I'm away from my house). I can watch it on my iPad at home... but, um, I COULD JUST WALK IN THE OTHER ROOM AND WATCH IT ON TV!!!!
I think/hope it has to do with my upload speed. 380k isn't going to cut it, and I can't get anywhere with AT&T on their Uverse fiberoptic. I found out that two houses on either side of me have it, but it skips over me. I think it's because I don't want their TV - just internet and phone. Grrrr...
Anyway, still can't Sling - but I think it's my upload speed.

Interesting update to Slingbox
For a different look at this Sling-iPad issue I suggest one look at my earlier post "Marriage made in Heaven." I cannot imagine getting better picture quality than I get over wifi at my home, or over the Net on the road.
I have a Sling Solo and use it on my blackberry all the time. It would be nice on my iPad but I am not going to pay 30 more dollars for the app.

I have an old Slingbox AV that I have been using. Works great for Ipod and computers. I am glad I read reviews of the Ipad app before wasting my money on it. I also have an Apple TV2 but am looking for an alternative method that does not require me to buy both a device and app.
Update: I reinstalled my AV and will continue to use it for the kids Ipod's as I already own the software for Ipod and Droid, but I am not so sure I want to shell out more money just to get it on my Ipad when I already have Netflix. Also reading about capacitor issues with the newer models too!
Further update: Installed the Ipod app I already owned on my Ipad. Works fine. Is not HD, but set in 2x mode, it is decent and saves a chunk of money.
