Slingbox update now brings automatic 4:3, 16:9 switching


So Sling released a tiny update, up to version 1.0.7 now, to its Sling Player software that, among other amazing things, is said to improve video quality. (Imagine that.) I was never quite bitten by the “location shifting” bug, so I can’t speak to the improvements first-hand, but PC World just raves about it.

Other goodies include the ability to switch between 4:3 and 16:9 on the fly and online Slingbox registration and ID storage.

That must be a fun feeling, being in a faraway hotel room alone watching your local news.
