I see you are having an issue controlling your DVR. Usually, the reason why would be due to the configuration when choosing the model of your DVR. I will be sending you links in regards to how to reconfigure and to resolve your issue. Keep in mind that once you are choosing your remote, if the exact model is not on the list you must try multiple models under that same manufacturer. Most Manufacturers have universal remotes that will definitely work all functions on your DVR. Since you did not specify which Slingbox model you purchased let me advise you can configure all Slingboxes on the Slingplayer for Desktop.

Well my community and myself have been interested in this Slingbox idea latley, so I decided to be the test subject. Using the Slingplayer app on my Android.....I have my DVR wired to my Slingbox and the Slingbox is hardwired to my router. I can access my Slingbox just fine inside and outside of my network but there is no option on the Slingplayer remote to control my DVR!! Pause, rewind, fast foward, record, play.....none of these options! I went through the programming for my specific DVR box on the app but obviously it was for nothing. I was ready to purchase 4 more units for my household but if I cant control the unit that the Slingbox was made to control then whats the point? I will not be giving a positive review on my community boards along with my Amazon reviews! Sling has not responded to any of my calls or emails!! They are not even attempting to help or contact me at all!!
