    Mine works from my MBP and from the iPad, but won't connect using iP4. Interested in a fix.

    It might have to do with your routers configuration not letting your phone connect. Does it connect when your phone is on wifi? My i4 connects fine over 3G and wifi.

    I am currently 1000 miles from my Slingbox, connecting remotely. It locates, logs in, and them times out during 'connecting'. Does this on both WiFi and 3G. It's working just fine from the computer and the iPad.

    so i just got off the phone with slingmedia and they told me my problem is because im using hdmi cables. but i dont want to downgrade my tv with component cables. so i guess i have to return the slingbox. does anyone know a better way to do this? and that directv isnt capable to view two different sources, ie watch a move on my iphone4 and a tv show on the tv at the same time. why did they lie at the beginning about this!?!?

    its just that my television is used way more that the slingbox will ever be. so its the obvious choice of the two.
