They are having issues with the Ipad and Iphone apps and have shut down all of the high quality streams. If you are familiar with the app you usually have the choice of "auto" "HQ" or "SQ" The auto and HQ selections are now grayed out and you are stuck with only the standard quality. It will work but will not be as crisp looking as before. So buyer beware. It is a great app when it works correctly and $15 is a great price. Might be worth a shot in hopes that they get everything straightened out soon. Too bad I purchased it on Saturday for full price only to find out that the high quality streams are shut down.

When the update to the new iOS rolled out we discovered a severe bug that caused SlingPlayer users on the iPhone and iPad to experience buffering or black screens when streaming from a Slingbox PRO-HD or SOLO. See the announcement here for more information on how we're fixing this issue!

Dang, I don't know much about Slingbox because I accomplish the same thing in other ways (but have wanted one of these, look so cool and easy, but they are so much $, I keep expecting them to get cheaper, and they still really haven't :/). Then I saw this I thought it was an app to turn my iPad or Android tabs INTO a sling box, that would be the sh*t, ah well .
FWIW, I've never been impressed with Ipad version of this app.... Only 2 bitrate options suck. I prefer to use my Hauppauge Broadway with the Ipad. It's certainly not a perfect device, but i think it works better with Ipad.
The Slingbox still works pretty good for PC use though... except for the TV Guide.
