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.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ
AT200, Hopper/XiP813 via HDMI & 360 via VGA to basement 42" Westy and both via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with an Apple TV, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Review. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

If an actual slingbox, then this thread is in the wrong forum and may not get you the best answers.

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.
