El Capitan support work-around: Enable the Develop Menu in Safari prefs - Advanced. Then from the Develop Menu - User Agent choose Google Chrome Mac. You may have to restart Safari and re-select but with a little tinkering it works.

Why do Sling never release details of what they have changed in each update? 3.3.20.475 appears identical to the previous version. The drop down menu limitations I mentioned earlier have not been addressed.

This is a difficult product to use with my iPhone. Not handy and really not, to me, worth the effort.

3.3.19.434 has been available for the last four weeks. Why has it taken MacUpdate so long to post this? One request: the pull-down menu from which you choose the SB you wish to use has a limit of five SBs. Beyond that number you have to scroll down every time to choose No. 6 or below. AND, unlike the SlingCatcher, the order in which you have previously used them is not retained. So, in my case, the one I use most (which happens to be No. 6) cannot be chosen without additional scrolling. Why the five SB limit? Why not implement the same procedure as for the SC, i.e. the list is regenerated each time after use to reflect the order that matches your usage.

Version 3.3.18.355 is a HUGE step forward. I had despaired of the plugin ever being updated. I use four Slingboxes in two different countries. Previously upon logging in I could not choose the Slingbox that I wanted. It would always automatically launch the one I last used. I had to cancel the launch before accessing a login page showing my four Slingboxes. Now all four can be found on the initial page in a drop-down menu and there is a proper Disconnect button to ensure that the connection is closed down properly. The design of the new plug-in is far more appealing and much easier to manipulate. I just wish they'd add the DirecTV HR24 to their database; it is after all the most popular and widely used model . I guess that, now they are owned by EchoStar, they have a vested interested in skewing their product towards the Dish Network.

I think I found a solution to the second display fullscreen problem. Load the watch.slingbox.com page, and change your view to a Pop-Up Window. It will be placed on the main screen. Then load the remote, and place it on the secondary screen. Double click the pop-up display, and for me it loads in the secondar window (with the remote). The pop-up display will become blank, and it can be hidden so that it's not in the way. Another bonus is that you can use the primary display without it changing the Slingbox display back to the pop-up window. I've tried so many things, and this was found by accident.

It works with Firefox 11. It still doesn't properly do full screen on an attached second display as it apparently can't properly determine the resolution. It works fine on the main display, though it will ONLY do full screen on the main screen with the menu bar. So its support for a second display is crude at best. The floating window works well.

I use this in Safari under Lion on my MacBook Pro and a Mac mini connected to an LCD TV. I have had zero issues with this. I was using an original Slingbox with the Slingbox app (long abandoned, replaced by this plugin for new Slingboxes) and was skeptical that the upgrade to the Solo (for HD support) would be worth having to use a browser to watch it... but it's been totally flawless. The built in guide is really nice, too.

The newest version is 3.3.9.205. You might have to delete the old plugin, located in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins, before installing this new version as the installer doesn't appear to correctly overwrite the old one. There doesn't appear to any improvement whatsoever over the previous version. The plug-in still doesn't work properly with a second display; it will only go full screen on the main monitor (the one with the menu bar), and even if you switch to the menu bar to the second display (using a utility such as SwitchRes) it still won't be centered properly in full screen. There is also a problem with the aspect ratio. You can't re-size the view without distorting the image instead of simply clipping it as would happen in the old Slinbox client. The is overall a poor effort, with little attention given to functional detail. I'm actually lowering my rating as there appears to have been to effort to correct glaring issues. Stick with the old application, even though the image quality will suffer a little.

I have no trouble running it in 64bit mode, but I DO have issues with full screen mode, which apparently only works on main screen, and won't scale properly in the browser window so it's off center. It also doesn't allow for very low quality connections, such as I like to use when I'm using my 3G card on my MBP. It does appear to provide a slightly improved picture over the application, but the desktop app allows for more customization of the stream. Overall, I find this provides only moderate benefit over the old application, and only if you have a very fast connection.

Crashes constantly, only works in 32bit mode and the streaming is very jerky. Bad product.
