  1. Bandwidth Throttling to keep a low profile at work

    At work if I run an application that demands too much bandwidth, I will get a call from our net admin. It would be nice to be able to select "High - 1GB +", "Medium - 500k", or "Low - 200K" bandwidth levels.

      • Integration with SlingCatcher

        If I could interface with Sling.com directly on my SlingCatcher, that would be the absolute best way to get web video content on my HDTV! You guys must already know this... :)

        • Keyboard commands for the onscreen remote

          When the remote control is onscreen while streaming through the Beta webportal, the keyboard commands don't seem to work at all (Firefox user here). I have to click the remote with the mouse to get it to work.

          • Live TV - allow me to vote on shows you think I should watch

            The live TV thing keeps showing me TV shows that I don't really want to watch. Can I vote or rate, or maybe even have a simple "never show this to me again" function. There might be good analogs with what Pandora does here

                We are working on getting programming information for other countries besides the U.S. Once we have that we will certainly make it part of the Live TV service.

              • Remote programming of DVR without lauching Slingplayer

                It would be great to have the functionality of programming my DVR to record programs when I am away from home either via a web browser or mobile phone without having to use the Slingplayer client.

                • Move Screen

                  I would like to be able to shrink the screen & put it to the side of the desktop (like on the slingplayer software) so that I can browse the internet while watching program

                  • Setup

                    Is there way to access your Slingbox via the LiveTV view to change settings like passwords, updates, etc?

                      Hello. Currently the Live TV service does not support additional setup functions like you have described. We are working towards adding these elements in the future.

                      Thanks

                      • Needs the option to change sound - mono/stereo/source

                        Needs the option to change the sound input - mon/stereo/source. It may be different than the sling and can't seem to always get sound though have plenty of bandwith.
