          Just re-run the Video Sources Setup routine to tell it you have a new device,.

              Hi Alan Im having similar problem.

              After having tried to change my digital tuner to a new one. The set up from slingbox remote viewing did not have my model so I tried the online viewer, for the code, it didnt have it either.

              However now when I try to change it using the remote viewing it just picks up the one on the online line and does not allow me the full setup process.

              I did try removing the sling box from the online but didnt work.

                  Sorry, don't understand a word of that    But if I substitute "Standalone Slingplayer" for "remote" and "Web-based player" for "online" I get:

                  The set up from the Standalone Slingplayer did not have my model so I tried the Web-based Player viewer, for the code, it didnt have it either.  However now when I try to change it using the Standalone Slingplayer it just picks up the one on the Web-based Player and does not allow me the full setup process. I did try removing the sling box from the Web-based Player but didnt work.

                   

                  That makes slightly more sense, although I still don't understand what you mean by "..when I try to change it using the Standalone Slingplayer it just picks up the one on the Web-based Player and does not allow me the full setup process..."

                   

                  Can you be a bit more specific ?
