I have Verizion Fios and the remote works but there is no volume control on the remote only the slide bar is this normal, it does not
look like my remote but it changes channels etc.
Changing the volume on the device is not supported. If there is a Volume control on a Virtual remote it is used to control the volume of Slingplayer itself.
my remote only says basic, to change stations I have to go up or down, can't enter channel directly. This is only on my laptop, works great on my Droid phone.
What device did you select when you went through the Video Input Setup routine ?
