  • Updated 4 years ago
I am running Win 8 on a work PC. Every time I install CE on this machine i can no longer connect to my slingbox at home. W/o CE installed it connects fine... I am not using CE filtering.

Anyone else have this prob? Fix?

Thanks in advance for any help...

Oh darn, I'm having the same problem. I was hoping there might be an answer here.

Windows 10, Latest CE, Only accountability and the slingplayer/slingbox desktop application doesn't work. .

Is there any update on this?  I'm also very interested in using CE and SlingBox/SlingPlayer on Windows 10.   But like Zac above, as soon as I install CE, the SlingPlayer won't load.

I have a 'legacy' (OLD!) SlingBox, which seems to limit me to streaming in Internet Explorer using a browser extension from SlingMedia.

Our Windows development team investigated, but we came to the conclusion that we need a slingbox device to debug the issue.  No one at Covenant Eyes headquarters has a Slingbox that we can use for testing, so I ordered one on Amazon.com.  

Hopefully any solution we come up with, will work for both newer and older versions of Slingbox.  I'll keep you posted on our progress.

Thanks,

Quick update on this issue.  One of our Windows developers made the change to fix this issue and passed it along to our QA team.  As soon as they are finished testing we'll arrange to send you a beta version that you can try.

Thanks for your patience.
