Slingplayer have updated their mobile app for the iPhone and iPad today adding support for video out over component cables in high quality mode. Now allowing you to beam your favourite viewing on to a big screen rather than having to view it on your mobile device.
There have also been a number of other new updates in this release including unspecified bug fixes. However early reviews of the new update look to have a few gremlins of their own with users complaining of not being able to change channels
To stream in High Quality (HQ) mode outside your home, you need at least 800 kbps of bandwidth from your Slingbox to your iPhone when using a Wi-Fi connection, and at least 500 kbps with a 3G connection.
To see available bandwidth within SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, tap the SQ button, then the Options button.
You can now download the latest Slingplayer release from the Apple iTunes App Store.
