    Remote Control for Directv

    carltonb

      I have Directv DVRs to which Slingbox Solos are attached. I am trying to get the 'virtual remote control' to appear in the slingplayer app of my WDTV Live devices, just like it does on the Windows PC SlingPlayer app.  However, I have not been able to do so.  Is there some other setup that I am missing? I can see the live stuff when I open the Slingplayer app and select the Solo, but I cannot bring up the remote control to control my Directv DVRs.

       

      Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

          Hello carltonb,

           

          This is a very good question that you have. I would be more than happy to help. The WD should give you options such as miscellaneous that will let you connect to all of the settings on the cable box. You should be able to access these options by hitting the menu button on the WD live remote. The options will not be laid out in a remote style but more like the phone app style menu.

           

          Hope this helps

           

          Thank you
