I’ve been wanting to try out Slingbox since it was first out. Pricing and the lack of Mac support were the main reasons why I never actually bought it. Fortunately, an acquaintance purchased Slingbox Pro a few days ago. I was asked to set it up and I didn’t waste any seconds to do so.
To summarize the whole experience, it’s great.
I’ll post the details later on.
iMac G5 1.83 GHz
20 inch display
GeForce FX 5200 64MB VRAM
Mac OS X 10.4.8 with all the lates updates as of 12.26.2006
For some reasons the Displays System Preferences only allowed two different resolutions: 640×480 and 1680×1050.
None of the following steps able to fix the problems:
- Deleting display preferences (com.apple.preference.displays.0011247aabd0.plist etc)
- Replace Display.prefPane (/System/Library/PreferencePanes/Displays.prefPane)
- Resetting NVRAM
- Zapping PRAM
- Use AppleJack to repair permissions, etc.
The solutions is much simpler than the steps above. Install Mac OS X 10.4.8 Combo Updater again.
The MacBook Pro was no longer charging because one of the pin in the MagSafe connector was somehow pushed in.
