    Safari?
    I installed and setup a Slingbox so my son can watch football games that are not shown in his area. That works great and as advertised.
    Slingbox says it will work with iPad2, but when he attemps it he gets a error message that says " we're sorry, but your current web browser or operating system or both is not currently supported by sling player plug-in" It goes on to say it can be used with Internet Explorer 7 or above, Firefox 5 and safari 5.
    What Safari version does the iPad2 use.?? The new ios5 has been downloaded and working fine.
    Thanks
    Wayne

    I use it on my iPad2 all the time

    Works fine with my iPhone and my MBP as well. It will not work with Google Chrome so I use Safari to connect. It is a great investment.

    There is also a dedicated Slingbox App, but it's a tad bit expensive.

    Thanks for that info.
    I looked at the app to do that, but I see so many negitive remarks about it and don't know if I should spend $30 for something that doesn,t work

    The Slingbox app has pretty much always worked well for me.

    I have the iPhone version but note that it is not a universal app.
