Seeing as SlingBox HD iOS streams have been disabled for the better part of 2 weeks now, I am done dealing with SlingBox. The people at SlingBox will not even admit that they are having problem, while the rest of the world can't stream any HD quality to iOS devices, and their web based player is 100% unusable on Win 7 or XP.

Is there an alternative to a SlingBox Pro? Some streaming device that can stream live TV other than SlingBox?

Still watching TV......

If you have a jailbroken ipad, revert to SlingPlayer 1.4.6 and all works fine, no airplay, but it works in HQ mode at least. Still no fix for the Iphone, May try reverting to Slingplayer from 16 months ago and see if that allows HQ mode.

SlingBox really has irritated almost 100% of their users. So many problems and issues nowdays people are really looking for alternatives as SlingBox has really dropped the ball, and refuses to admit there is a problem.

I have the Vulkano Flow and love it -- great quality streaming on local network or remote. Apps for Android and ios work great, and they're cheaper than Sling.

I have been looking for a streaming device myself. I have heard bad reviews on the slingbox as of late. How does your vulkano work ? have you used any device to stream to a tv in a different location?
