over their network using the "sling Device"?
I sure have not and I have a reasonably fast network. I have tried wireless and power line.
And why do you say that? Nice attitude when wanting some help. For the record I use it on my PC, Android tablets and phone and happen to be watching ESPN on my PC with it right now. Bitrate over 8000kbps. HD is a relative term and I wouldn't call the PQ great but it works.
I've used multiple computers, multiple operating systems, and multiple browsers. I have an 8 up, 35 down internet connection. In my opinion, Dish Anywhere is an epic failure. It is inconsistent, unreliable, buggy, and poorly implemented.
So, to answer your question, yes, there are others out there who have problems. Hey Dish: it's not our equipment. It's your idiotic interface.
I am happy to help you today! What type of mobile device are you using? Are you connecting through 3G/4G or Wi-Fi? Are you getting an error message on the screen? Do you know what your upload/download speeds are? If not, please go to speedtest.net to find these speeds and let me know what the results are.
This is the problem with Dish Anywhere, I believe - you cannot stream from one device in your local network to another, the stream comes from the internet. Unless it's changed of course - I gave up long ago, as it was without a doubt the worst experience yet in my HT.
Since the response above indicates speedtest.net, it's still the same. Not worth the trouble IMO.
UPDATE: Just checked again, getting 8200+ kbps streaming from sling to home pc, my upload speed test is only 4000 kbps so it has to be streaming local to my network.
Could anyone else confirm this? (would love if a dish rep could)
We just got the hopper w/ sling a couple weeks ago, and I have been using it to watch some prime time anytime shows on my android while my wife is watching her shows on the big screen.
This is all over our local connection, but it seems like our ISP is reporting higher bandwith consumption than we normaly have.
We are on a limited amount per month, so I would like to be able to keep track of everything like this which could turn into high cost bandwidth consumption for us.
thanks for any help,
It's terrible. I've been fighting with it for over a year now. Sling crashes, 'could not connect to your DVR', and a half dozen other random errors pop up all the time. Always have to downgrade the quality on HD channels. It seems to especially like to crash right at the end of movies.
