I used to be able to connect to my receiver remotely w/o any problem. For a a while now I have been able to access my recordings, set new timers etc., but when I click on a recording or try to watch live TV, I am getting the regular screen with the blue bar. At first it says "initializing", and then "connecting" and that's where it gets stuck. The stream never starts, I have the same issue on my laptop, my iphone and my android tablet. I have restarted the receiver, my router and modem, reset the broadband connection, all w/o success. I have a  hopper with a sling adapter (not the build in version). Is anybody else experiencing this issue? Its very annoying since I travel a lot. I am pretty sure (but not 100% positive) that this started after the last update on April 5. Could this be hardware related (sling adapter??).


Thanks for your help! Attached is a screen shot showing the issue.

Where are you trying to use the app from?  I know where I work, the app is problematic unless I switch on my iphone's VPN...then it works fine.  Some wifi hotpots/ work wifi do some port/protocol blocking that can cause issues.

Is the red light on the Sling Adapter illuminated? Have you tried reseating the Sling Adapter or trying a different USB port?
