    question about connecting to dish network

    hmarolf

      I have a Dish Network receiver model VIP 222K which is not in the list during set up.  One receiver, 2 remotes which allows watching different programs on two separate TVs.  I've set up the slingbox with the intent to access the second remote, but it'll only recognize the 1st remote.  I've called tech support twice. Any suggestions?

          Hi hmarolf,

           

          Thanks for contacting sling forums!

           

          The second remote is probably an RF (Radio Frequency) device. The  IR Blasters need to be used with an IR (Infra-Red) remote.  The IR Blasters will need to be set up on the second box if it has an IR eye.  You will need to contact DISH and ask how to change that remote to IR.  The Slingbox needs to be at the box used and plugged to Slingbox.

           

          Hope this helps!
