    Do I have to set up my slingbox from the computer I want to stream to?

    Kremmer

      Hi guys

       

      Quick question: I want to buy a Slingbox Pro HD but live quite far from where I want to install the box. I want to buy it from an internetsite, and get a friend to install it in his place, BUT do I have to be there with my own computer or can it be done by him and his computer? And at the same time letting me stream to my devices?

       

      Thx!

          Hi Kremmer,

           

             That's a great question! I believe that I have an answer. The setup will have to be done on a computer that will be connected to the same network as the Slingbox. If you are hooking up the Slingbox at your friends house then he can use his computer to run the setup. After the setup is complete you can watch the Slingbox from any computer anywhere, as long as you have adequate Internet connection/processing speed! I have also attached a link below that has some helpful information as well.

           

           

          Hope this helps,
