Hi.... Yes you can use SlingPlayer with the Q9h. There is one problem but you can override it. When you first start SlingPlayer and it starts at the small screen the video is split. When you put it on full screen no problems at all. I spoke with SlingMedia and they are aware of the issue. Other than that minor glitch it works great. Sound is awesome with or with using a headset. I use the Koss Ear Plugs and they are great. Love SlingPlayer!
