    technical details of how slingbox/player connect.

      When you enter the ID of the slingbox in the player, how **exactly** does the sling player reach out over the internet to find the sling box?

       

      My assumption is that the slingplayer connects to slingbox.com which has a record of the current IP# and port# of the slingbox ID which is then shared with the player.

       

      I ask because we are about to change the static IP# of the gateway the slingplayer is behind and don't want to screw up the connection.

       

      Right now, we script the wake up of sling player to reach out and talk to a slingbox every weekday morning to broadcast a live TV show on public Access TV,  ideally we don't want this to break.
