That comment relates to the previous version of the iPad app. The latest version shows a realistic remote. Unfortunately that means you cannot access any functions that are not associated with any of the buttons. I have pointed out this shortcoming to Sling, but so far have not had any reaction. Your only solution is for me to build you a custom remote and map the missing functions to some of the buttons that you don't use. If you want that (and you don't have aSlingbox 350/500) I need to know the manufacturer and model number.
