Hi
Thanks to my lovely little 2 year daughter, I now have a broken aerial (Wi-Fi!) on the back of my SB1!!
It still works (slightly lower signal strength as its too poorly to stand upright now) but of course it would be nice to have a healthy one again!!
Does anyone know where I can source a *black* Wi-Fi aerial from with the same gain/spec as the SlimDevices one?
Or do the Slim boys have any spares for me?

Thanks

Nic

That's handy. I just noticed "case and hardware" for $29. I'd quite like to buy a black case for my Platinum SB2. Are they available in the UK?

Thanks Michael
Perhaps I should have added that I am in the UK. Looking at the Slim shipping policy (well UPS's) this $7.5 aerial would end up costing considerably more by the time it got to me!!
Is this aerial just a standard 2.2 / 3 dB gain jobby?

Their UK distributors should be able to send you one.

If a man speaks in a forest,
and his wife's not there,
is he still wrong?

Where on earth did they get that picture from? She's not even holding a Slim remote! I think we should have a picture of Sean in exactly the same pose with a real remote. ;-)

PS I've never seen a picture of Sean. This would work best if he has a beard and a large beer gut. :-)

I think this is a stock picture from some image library. Or how do you
explain this (see left column, "was läuft?"):

Thanks.
Now maybe a dumb question, but I've looked at the UK resellers sites and none of them seem to supply any "accessories"?

It's probably an old pic from the original Slimp3 days when the bundled
remote was just a sony universal programmed to operate the Slimp3.

Hey Sean

Can you send her round to mine to get my aerial up and working again? (snigger!!)

But seriously (!)- do the UK distibutors have access to the Slimdevices accessories??
