    Internet Connection Required?

    daveshinnick

      We live in a motorhome and often lack internet access. Assuming I have internet access when I set the mobile player up, on initial use, but then go into an area where I have no internet access. Can I use the mobile player to view my tv from within my own local wifi network? That is, will the mobile player work to connect to the tv through my own local private wifi network with NO internet access?

       

      Thanks-

      Dave

          Hi daveshinnick,

           

          In order to connect to the Slingbox using your Android, you need to run first the Setup at slingbox.com but one of the requirements is a High-speed Internet connection.

          Unfortunately this configuration will not work, the Slingbox and the SlingPlayer Mobile need an Internet connection to work, even though you are planning to use it on a local network.
