    Network set-up

      My router only has one Ethernet port, which is connected to the Time Machine.  Can I plug the sling box into the Time Machine?

          Hi Joeelm,

           

          You need to be more specific about the question you made, what I understand is that you want to have connected the Slingbox to a Mac computer, and this one attached to the router, correct? I did some research and the Time Machine is just a software of the Mac. For this scenario, the short answer is no, the Slingbox needs to be connected to regular router or to a bridge (power or wireless). If you are have a Time Capsule device connected to a router, yes, you can connect the Slingbox to this device and run normally the Setup at slingbox.com.
