Sling has also released an update for the SlingCatcher firmware and the associated desktop software. The firmware upgrade is available as an update from the SlingCatcher interface under the 'Settings' tab and it includes fixes for all areas of the device. The desktop software has been updated to support 64-bit Windows Vista, and in addition to the previously released SlingProjector, the package now includes SlingSync and a performance monitoring tool which helps ensure you have the best SlingProjector experience possible on that PC. SlingSync will quickly scan files to ensure compatibility with the SlingCatcher's MyMedia application.
