    Can you install slingplayer on a computer that is in another country from where the slingbox is?

      I live in Vancouver but my slingbox is at my family's home in NY.  I am trying to install the slingplayer on a mac but every time I try to install the player it unsuccessfully searches for the slingbox on my network here in Vancouver.  It seems like there should be a simple solution to this but I couldn't find it on the slingbox web site.

       

      BTW, I know that the slingbox works and that I can view it from here since I have the slingplayer loaded onto an old laptop.  However, that player was installed when I was back in NY so I'm not sure if the slingplayer can be installed at a remote location.  Any help here would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
