Sling Adapter Status: Invalid
Posted 07 September 2012 - 03:07 PM
I can't seem to connect to it via PC or Android.
Network is connected, but Sling Adapter Status shows as "Invalid" in the Diagnostics list page 2.

Is the red dot on the logo supposed to be lit?
I called CS and they walked me through some steps. They seem to think that the Hopper is the problem, because the following steps yielded the same "Invalid" result.
1. Disconnect Sling
2. Disconnect power to Hopper for 10 seconds
3. Re-power Hopper
4. With Sling still disconnected, check status
We also did a factory reset on the Hopper and then did all of the above and got the same results.
I guess he was saying that the system's firmware didn't seem to be capable of knowing whether a Sling was connected or not.
Anyway a new Hopper is on its way to me, so we'll see how that does.

Plugged the Sling into the PC and immediately smelled that fried electronics smell.

A side note: The DVR backup and restore feature worked perfectly as I transitioned from the original Hopper to the replacement unit.
If you don't backup your DVR settings and remotes on a regular basis you really should consider doing so.
It's a beautiful thing to not have reprogram all of your timers.
