I just purchased a Slingbox PRO-HD Model SB300-140.

I am having major issues with video playback on my local area network. The picture is constantly freezing and optimizing. I have to go below 500kb for the smoothest playback and even then it still freezes and stutters quite a bit.

I have sling player installed on an HP Media Centre PC (Specs below)
-Windows Vista 64 bit
-4GB RAM
-500GB Hard Drive (Well over 200GB free)
-Intel Quad Core Processor at 2.8GHz

I have a linksys 10/100/1000 router and the PC in questiion has a gigabit ethernet connection to the router.

I can't see my PC's hardware being the problem as it exceeds the minimum requirements by quite a bit and my LAN should be more then sufficient for HD playback. Anyone have any ideas what might be happening here?

Just to confirm, is the Slingbox connected to your network via Ethernet? Or wireless / sling turbo unit?

I have a Slingbox Pro HD on my network using a wireless bridge (g/b) and can usually stream HD to my local computers with no issues.

Only other thing I can think of right now is do you have a bittorent client running on any local computers? I've had network issues resolve themselves after closing down the bittorrent client, even if it wasn't actively downloading at the time...

edit: Thought of one more: Not sure if the slingplayer software will let you know if the latest firmware is running on the slingbox but you might want to confirm that. Mine is running 1.4.60
