"Contrary to negative reports - Solo works great!"
16 May 2013
Pros: Living in the Philippines, most all US video is blocked: government here refuses to enforce piracy laws. Slingbox is the only option: streaming Comcast from Portland, OR. 2 years of use no problems at all. Powered up 24hrs, used here 6 hours daily.
Cons: Website is down twice a year, once for 2 days. ISP connection speed (poor in the Philippines) under 500Kbps: forget it, picture freezes. More than a few seconds, content is lost. BUT not a Slingbox problem, its an ISP problem! 2+Mbps works great.
Pros: No positive attributes to the Slingbox Support since they can not help when I am in a remote location
Cons: Zero help, counter-productive trouble shooting techniques. Asked me to make multiple changes to set up then claimed success that I had a bad cable. NEWSFLASH..I did not change the cable, I did not reboot my modem, I did not change the port on my modem.
