I have a Slingbox Pro attached to a Buffalo DTV-H500R. Digital TV Tuner.
I have not been able to find a Virtual Remote that works for this combiniation.
I have tested the IR Blasters and both units are working properly.
I have also tried using both the on-line and PC standalone software....no luck so far.
Attempts at Slingbox Player on a PC.....
I have tried using the Buffalo 300 bin file on my Buffalo DTV-H500R Digital Television Recorder.
However the file appears to be empty as it only contains 1KB of data.
- BINs: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=8903
- XML, RMDU, and BINs: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=8904
Also, the documentation appears to be confusing.
This ZIP file contains 2 BIN files.
S2010_PL.bin and S2010_RV.bin
Put the two files into your C:\Program Files\Sling Media\Slingplayer\SBAV\ folder.
Now go into Slingplayer and run Setup Assistant and 'Configure Video Sources'.
Work through the screens Making sure you select 'Standalone DVR' as the device type (regardless of the type of your device).
This time use 'Other' as the Manufacturer and the Model and in the next screen scroll to the bottom of the Code numbers,
select 'Custom' and then type C2010 (NOT C2010, the code is case-sensitive) in the newly appeared Custom Code window
(or use the Alternative Code window in the MAC). Then complete the setup as normal.
The name of the files are S2010 however, the documentation refers to C2010?
When I try doing the set up as S2010 the Setup Assiatant loads, however it's an empty .bin file...so none of the buttons do anything.
Attempts at Slingbox on-line.....
I have several times tried using the slingbox.remote to build a virtual remote.
The Slingbox Remote software says it has trainned the Slingbox Pro to read the remote.
However, when I tried to use the remote none of the keys functioned.
I have also loaded the Buffalo PC-STB (Cable Box) files on line, but they also did not work.
Not channel changing, not even the on/off function works.
Slingbox is interested in selling more boxes, but not very interested in supporting the need for Virtual Remotes.
Anybody got any ideas on where I might look for a better solution to the problem?
