10mb upload vs. 20mb upload

3 posts in this topic

I've been having a problem for quite sometime with 10mb upload speeds (which is what I have), and certain Slingbox models.

 

When I have 10mb upload and if I have somebody either rent or exchange a Slingbox, they'll tell me that the speed is not good enough and the picture keeps freezing. However, I've seen certain reviews from people that have been renting from hosts that have 20mb upload or higher and they say that the speed is better.

 

Has anybody else overseas that has rented a Slingbox with 10mb upload experienced problems? If not, then could it be a problem with my modem or router?

Scott, I have about the same upload speed as you and never had any problem with my rentals and exchanges. I had a guy from the UK and Germany, they were quite happy about the speed they were getting around 2.5- 3  mpbs stream rate which is enough for HD quality, no lags no freezing. Now, which slingbox are you using? 350 is very stable, in the other hand the Slingbox Pro-HD can do funny things sometimes. I would go with either the Slingbox 500 if you can afford or the Almighty Slingbox 350

Well right now I have a customer using a PRO-HD setup that I've had for quite sometime and I'm getting a 350 shipped to my house in about a couple of days.

 

I'll just have to see how the 350 goes with my internet connection. If I still experience speed problems, even with the 350, then I guess I'll have to consult with Comcast about getting the speed problem fixed. In other words, it could be issues with my modem.

 

Thanks for the advice!
