I have a slingbox solo which worked great but over the last several months (possibly after an update) the remote control option for my dvr was no longer available. When I was recently at home using slingplayer for ipad on the same network as my slingbox it began working so I assumed the problem had been resolved. Now I am away and the remote is not changing the channel. I downloaded and the standalone sling player for windows so I could install the custom remote posted by alanrichey42 but despite following the instructions closely I have not been able to power on or off nor change the channel. I did not get any error messages. I can tell that the programming pauses briefly whenever I do the power or channel test so something is happening. I've confirmed that my ir blasters are in the proper position. Does anyone have any solutions?
