Sling Media recently released a new Sling Player Mobile for Smartphone version which fixes the incompatibility Windows Mobile Smartphone users with landscape devices (such as the Samsung BlackJack akaSGH-i607 and T-Mobile Dash aka HTC Excalibur) faced.
The new SlingPlayer Mobile for Windows Mobile Smartphone v1.0.5 solved the problem now that also the latest Windows Mobile Smartphones are supported now!
I would say it's a "just in time launch", so close to Christmas where, I'm sure, many Slingboxes and Windows Mobile phones are given away.

Further enhancements are:

  • Fixed incompatibility with T-Mobile Dash/ HTC Excalibur and Samsung BlackJack
  • Fixed streaming profile to allow for streaming at higher bitrates
  • Minimized ghost images/ artifacts
  • Addressed accessibility of Favorites bar (can now be invoked through '#' and/or Spacebar keys depending on device)
  • Further graphics refresh fixes
  • Navigation keys (Up/Down/Left/Right) now mapped correctly to Cursor Up/Down/Left/Right commands for DVD video input type
  • '-' can be saved in channel number field when setting up a favorite channel shortcut (for all input types other than internal tuner)
  • Missing keyboard remote control shortcuts added (e.g. A Button or Red = 'A', B Button or Green = 'B', and C Button or Yellow = 'V', for remotes that have these corresponding buttons)
  • "*" key (swap channels remote control function) on mobile device fixed and now enabled when controlling the Sony SAT-HD200

As always, the upgrade is free for registered customers. Please note, that at the moment the SlingPlayer Mobile client is available for U.S. and Canadian users only.

Cheers ~ Arne
