    iPad Slingplayer app released - for Pro-HD and Solo models

    Finally!
    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?

    Thanks

    it works really well over 3G the quality is amazing compare to the iPhone version that was on my iPad... I have the pro hd and the solo but now I'm using the pro hd via coaxial cable sd... I can only imagine better results with a hd source...

    It works fine...no additional features at all so really not worth the $30 upgrade price, but they are a monopoly, so they can abuse it.

    the feature is it's optimize for the iPad.... try the iPhone one on the iPad and you will see how it sucks a**... yes of course no major feature but they can always update the app to support new features....

    Ok, so Ibought the slingbox pro hd and just finished installing it.
    Scientific Atlanta 8300HD, I used composite and component cables
    Picture quality on the ipad, from best to worse:
    1-wifi over component - pretty nice
    2-3G over component
    3-composite...over 3G or wifi - both pretty low picture quality

    This is going to be fun, I'm going to enjoy this

    StefX,

    I'm using SlingBog Pro-HD and using SlingLink to connect my TV source with my Internet source through the wiring in my Home. I use it via WiFi (don't have 3G) adn am getting HD quality picture. I rate it so far at a 4++. The only drawback is it should have been able to give you a diagram of your remote control to control the Pic and DVR. With that it would be a 5+.

    Is there a way to see the actual bitrate like you can in the desktop app?

    Also, for the remote functions...yeah I wish they did like the desktop app
    So far, however, I have found any function I have needed in the "misc" tab

    I am so mad about this! I waited and waited and now it will not work with the Pro! I don't understand why the Pro will work with iPhone app on the iPad but not the iPad app?

    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.

    Major disapointment

    I own two Slings, a Pro and an AV, both blocked in the app from connecting. Everytime a post to Slings forum is placed their mods delete. I have been so happy for my Slings, which are placed in the US, while I am in Europe, However, this latest scam will cause me to never recommend them again. If the Sling logic held true, then my new laptop with Full HD should not be allowed to connect either, but it actually does. Take a look thru the discussions to see all the probelems they are having with this HD, before you invest in this.Most people are not seeing any HD video at all. Most people do not have the upstream bandwidth to stream HD either. It seems like a scam to get people to purchase a new disposable peace of hardware that will be obsolete as soon as a new fancy device, like the IPAD comes out.
    Yes I am disappointed, because I was looking forward to this app for a while now.
