Really works!

After 3 years of living overseas and missing out on Big 10 sports, I finally made the investment in a Slingbox. I have found it works brilliantly. There is a bit of a lag at times, especially if you want to fast forward or rewind a recorded program, and especially if you’re using AirPlay on your Apple device. Don’t be alarmed if it flashes back to the Apple TV homepage or says it’s disconnected, because it will reconnect itself. Not sure why it does that and it’s only when I’m using AirPlay and FF/Rewind a recorded show. You have a remote icon just like the one at home and can select favourite stations to find shows more easily. I have mine connected to a family members cable box and required their assistance to initially setup my devices. As long as they aren’t using that TV at the same time I want to watch it works fine. If they lose power I need them to restart it. The cable box must be ON AT ALL TIMES but their TV does not. You have to have your devices on the same WiFi network in order to initiate and activate a device, but once you have the app on your device you can be anywhere in the world and watch TV via the Slingplayer app. There is only the initial investment of the box, no monthly fee. I wish I had done it years ago. I have found it to be easy to use and less complicated than trying to find and keep up with having my own VPN.

Internet coverage

When I purchased the Slingbox several years ago I was unable to clearly watch television through the Slingbox (at a location where there was very slow Internet service) as there was an unbelievable amount of buffering. Now that I am able to use the Slingbox through my iPhone app casting to my remote television, I now get television coverage as clear as my local television. With the use of Chromecast, the Slingbox deserves a five star rating.

Poor UI design

I got a Slingbox 500 for Christmas and I think I’ll be returning it after using this app.

The app is poorly optimized for iPhone X devices, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. If you have any of these devices, you’re out of luck — certain buttons will occasionally position themselves off the corners of the screen or behind the notch where they can’t be pressed easily (or sometimes at all.)

Furthermore, the home bar indicator does not disappear when viewing full screen, and will ALWAYS be in the way of what you are watching. Because apparently Slingbox engineers did not realize there is a feature called “Auto Hide” when programming this app. Here guys, I’ll get you started:

class ViewController: UIViewController {
override func prefersHomeIndicatorAutoHidden() -> Bool {
return true
}
}
Anyway, this only scratches the surface on what is very wrong with this app but in this current state, I can’t recommend it to anyone. Slingbox, please overhaul and fix this app. You’ve already lost me — don’t lose anyone else.
