I'm in Chicago full time, my Slingbox is hooked up in Detroit. Some sort of problem seems to creep up every year, and this year it's that my remote is not responsive. I've had the person who has the Slingbox check the sensors.
I'm running Windows 7 now, and that's the only difference and I have classic Slingbox.
I tried doing the online, but no luck since I'm not with the Slingbox.
Is there a known solution to this? Seems easy enough...it sucks that the setup just locks up and does nothing. It tells me to update flash or something like that, but I've already done that and still get the same error after SB crahes the setup menu.
There could be a few different reasons why the remote is not responsive now. Sling Media doesn't support the Sllingbox Classic anymore.
I am sure there is a way to make it work. If you want to go to the http://placeshiftingenthusiasts.com site we can help you.
Are you using the web browser or the Stand Alone Player? If the Stand Alone what version are you running?
If you are having issues when trying to control the Slingbox from remote locations, we recommend you to check the IR Blasters. The following links will provide you with some steps to follow.
