I can view the slingbox just fine on the standalone slingplayer (v126.96.36.1992) on windows 7/8/10.
If the IP address found for the finder ID is correct, then your firewall could be blocking access. Either allow JSBR through your firewall, or if the slingbox on the same network you are running JSBR on use the local IP address instead of the finder id.
If the IP address found for the finder ID is not correct, then enter the correct IP address.
