"Sling Media backs up and breaks the Slingbox!"1.5 starson by astrobuf
Pros: Easy to set up, inexpensive, nice box design
Cons: You cannot record any more!
Summary: Sling Media took a winner of a product and "enhanced" it by encrypting the media stream last month. This nifty feature was a hidden consequence of a firmware upgrade they pushed on owners last month. As a result, the ability to record a media stream for later playback is now taken away.
This seems to be the first time I've known a supplier to downgrade a customers service and product capability after the device was purchased. That they did it in such a sneaky manner says much about the companies committment to the customer.
I'd advise you look at the Monsoon HAVA instead!
