                  Well, you may have used it but you don't appear to have read the instructions.  Particularly the part that says "...If you have problems please do NOT just report back it 'doesn't work', that is totally useless for someone trying to understand what is going on.  So please report..."   Care to try again ?

                  Obs: I need to use my remote control in SLINGBOX.COM and this binary files work only on desktop software.

                  Not true.  When you install that remote you actually download it to the Slingbox itself.  After that, ANY viewing system (Slingplayer, SlingCatcher, WebSlingPlayer, SlingPlayer Mobile,.,,) will use that remote.

                        I tried with the slingbox software installed on my pc (windows 7) and don't works. I followed all the steps in this tutorial:

                         

                        ReadMe======
                        IMPORTANT:  If you have any problems PLEASE read ALL of this file before you post a question on the forums.
                        This ZIP file contains 2 BIN files. 
                        V2010_PL.bin and V2010_RV.bin
                        (These instructions assume you have installed the standalone Slingplayer on your PC/MAC, as you cannot install Custom Remotes from the Web-based player.  If you do not have the program see http://support.slingbox.com/go/windows-download-desktop-us or http://support.slingbox.com/go/dl-mac-desktop)
                        PC Version:-----------Put the two BIN files into your C:\Program Files\Sling Media\Slingplayer\SBAV\ folder.  (C:\Program Files(x86)\Sling Media\Slingplayer\SBAV\ for WIN7) Mac version:------------Put the two files into your /Applications/SlingPlayer/Contents/Slingbox Setup Assistant/Contents/Resources/SBAV/ (Note that The Contents dirs won't show up unless you do a "Right-Click -> Show Package Contents" when navigating into an app's "Contents" directory.)

                        Now go into Slingplayer and run Setup Assistant and 'Configure Video Sources'.  Work through the screens Making sure you select 'Standalone DVR' as the device type (regardless of the type of your device).
                        This time use 'Other' as the Manufacturer and the Model and in the next screen scroll to the bottom of the Code numbers, select 'Custom' and then type V2010 (NOT v2010, the code is case-sensitive) in the newly appeared Custom Code window (or use the Alternative Code window in the MAC).  Then complete the setup as normal.  Note that some devices (Comcast DTA for example) do not support Power On/Off so will fail the power test.  Just ignore it and carry on.
                        I have mapped all the logical keys.  Extra functions have been mapped to the Custom Menu on the remote (Tap the Menu button at the top of the remote and select Custom) as follows:
                        Custom 10:     FavouriteCustom 11:     ServiceCustom 12:     HDCustom 13:     ProgramCustom 14:     Sat/AntCustom 15:     TV/VideoCustom 16:     +
                        And if you are using the Standalone Slingplayer for MAC or Slingplayer 1.5 for the PC, neither of which have not been updated to show colour buttons on the basic remote then:
                        Custom 22:     Red    (A)Custom 23:     Green  (B)Custom 24:     Yellow (C)Custom 25:     Blue   (D)Custom 26:      White  (E)
                        And to answer the obvious question, you can NOT rename the Custom menu options to their function, SlingMedia do not allow that.  The best thing to do is use Slingplayer V1.5, which allows you to add them as Custom Buttons, with icons, at the bottom of the screen.
                        But if you want a much better remote 'skin' which does include the Custom Buttons, then check out this thread:  https://community.sling.com/thread/8533?tstart=0
                        If you have problems please do NOT just report back it 'doesn't work', that is totally useless for someone trying to understand what is going on.  So please report the following:
                        1.   Was there any error message after you typed in the Code and tapped the Power button ?
                        2.   Did you give the Power command plenty of time to react ?  (I have a DVR that takes about 6-8 seconds to power up/down)
                        3.   After completing the setup (regardless of whether the Power button worked) do any of the other buttons work ?
                        4.   Have you used a Digital Camera to confirm the IR Blaster is actually firing when you tap the Power button ?  (Watch the tip of the IR Blaster thorugh the viewfinder while you tap a button.  You should see a white (not red) flash)
                        5.   Have you experimented with the placement of the IR Blaster ?  On some devices this is critical so don't give up too quickly.
                        6.   If nothing works check out http://betaremotes.slingbox.com where you might be able to build your own remote.

                         

                         

                        From the Readme(DVR).txt file.

                            I tried with the slingbox software installed on my pc (windows 7) and don't works.

                            I despair !!!    I specifically asked you NOT just report back it 'doesn't work'.  So what do you do, you report back it doesn't work, and simply reprint the set of instructions I wrote.    How do you expect us to help ? 

                             

                            Would you phone up your local garage and say "My car doesn't work, what is wrong with it?"  Of course not, you would describe the exact symptoms, what you have had done to try and fix it, whether it starts or not........     So please do the same with this problem.

                             

                            Go through the instructions, step by step and tell us EXACTLY what happens and when you get to the stage where something goes wrong.
