said by SHoTTa35 : Wrong, even my SOLO box will push more than 1200Kbps as shown in the screen shot I just took 15 minutes ago. My HD box would push twice this much over FiOS, while on Comcast I hit between 1.5 and 4 Kbps with an occasional buffering or a complete signal loss.
Slingbox isn't doing more than 1200Kbps...
This never happened to me with FiOS, but it happens all of the time with Comcast now. I have to lower the quality setting if I hope to keep a steady video stream.
I hit 6Mbps on speed tests, but I can't sustain that speed with a consistent stream. I think 4 is my max. I doubt you can reach 10Mbps except for short bursts, and a solid upload stream of ~8Mbps would certainly bring your downloads to a crawl in the same manner that mine are when I max my uploads streaming my Slingbox video.

A cable connection (subjectively) is going to have a more profound effect during upstream (upload) saturation. Are you using QoS rules or priority to reduce the priority of the Slingbox from saturating the upstream? Once the upstream is saturated, you will not be able to download effectively. I doubt you'll need to reduce the quality, just reduce how fast the Slingbox is trying to send the stream.
