Is my Slingbox compatible with the iPad?

You may be wondering if your Slingbox will stream video using the SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad app. Before you spend $29.99 on the app, check the recommended configuration:

1. SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad 1.0
2. iPad running iOS 4.1 or later
3. Slingbox SOLO with version 2.1.110 or later firmware OR Slingbox PRO-HD with version 2.1.80 or later firmware

Some other configurations might work, however video quality will suffer on your iPad. If you have a Slingbox Classic, Tuner, AV, or PRO:

1. Use the iPhone app: SlingPlayer Mobile 2.0
2. HQ video will not work with these Slingbox models
3. The iPad must run SlingPlayer Mobile 2.0 in iPhone compatibility mode (low resolution with pixel doubling)
