Version 1.6 - 24th March 2015

  • Now launchable from Kodi (Progam Add On)

Version 1.5 - 8th March 2014

  • Various and substantial changes and enhancements by Oliver.

Version 1.46 - 14th June 2013

  • Changes by Oliver:-
  • If the stream is taken over by another user/Slingplayer then tidily drops back to the menu system rather than just show a black screen.
  • If the user is the administrator then automatically take over the stream when connecting rather than fail after a while with a login error.
  • Made it still show the View and Edit Slingbox menu options if no Slingboxes have been found. This addresses an issue where if SlingFront is launched before an Internet connection has been established (such as can happen if it's launched immediately after Windows boots) it means you have to exit and re-launch the app to get the list of Slingboxes.
  • Fixed a minor bug where the default mapping for Power (P) wasn't set correctly on a new install.
  • Added the following keyboard mappings: Play, Stop, PAuse, Rewind, Fast Forward, Record, Page Up, Page Down, and Quality.
