Error communicating with sling box (error 38)
Posted 16 January 2011 - 12:25 PM
I can't find anything on what causes this error or how to fix it. The only solution I see is to go back to DirecTV -who, in 10 years of service never gave me a product that failed so miserably at meeting the hype.

Again, if you are trying to "sling" HD content to a PC your upload MUST be above 3.0Mbps. If its SD content, it MUST be above 600kbps. These are "required" speeds for the Sling to function 100% of the time, and being at the minimum may still have some fairly serious PQ issues. The issue you described (being able to access via 3G on a mobile device) and the inability to watch online via computer is EXACTLY symptomatic of upload speed. Check it out for yourself and you will see what I mean. Hope this helps get it corrected.
