Hi,I tried it all, rest Slingbox, checked PVR for IR remote -its on, by going through the whole sling setup even with the remote not working, The remote Vip922 does show up but doesnt work, I even tried all the Bell codes and Echo VPs 922 and others,even all the custom codes,only goes to 19.
I'm thinking maybe the PVR but the UHF and IR remotes work???
starnge that it used to work-any other ideas
Allen this was frustrating so I bought brand new slingbox solo, a brand new Bell 9241 PVR, hooked everything up, used remote for echostar VP922, and I get TV but still no capability to change channels or anything with the remote.It does show the black pvr remote,
All new equipment, tried it on my other 9241 where the remote wouldpreviously work with the Bell 9241 and older sling solo.
I am thinking Bell sent out an upgrade to the rcvr and now the remotes with this (echostar VP922) no longer work, maybe they disabled IR capabilities?
Have you heard of others with the same problem?
Make sure that IR/UNF remote is #1 on the satellite receiver
use the web based slingbox setup, not the icon on the pc
in set up pick "echostar as the receiver" (manufacturer}
remote code "Echostar EXPRESSVU CODE 1"
works good with theremote that matches the sat receiver
Thanks for your help Alan
Wow. THANK YOU.
Was going NUTS over this – Finally got it FIXED.
- Slingbox PRO (legacy)
- Bell ExpressVU 9241
- IR blaster camera test is successfull, yet no remote control response.
- 1- Set the "Remote Address" to 1 (see Remote Control Setup guide, page 2). Note: Press “Menu” twice on the 9241 remote control to see what the "Remote Address" is set to.
- 2- Factory reset Slingbox.
- 3- Run Setup Wizard from web.
- 4- Select "EchoStar" as the Manufacturer and "ExpressVu (code 1)" as the Model.

The remote address is a # from 1-13 that you set both your remote control and PVR in order to control the PVR.
Slingbox seems to only have the number 1 listed! If you have more than one PVR like me, (old Express Vu 5200 and now a new HD version 9241, its OK online but changes both at the same time at home!
