Is the update only good for 500?
Yes (and the 350). If you select 'Configure Inputs' for any other type of box it switches to http://setup.slingbox.com
How do you put in custom remotes?
When it re-appears the method is relatively easy. Just do the setup as you would for a supported box. When you get to the manufactures selection, scroll right to the bottom of the list and select 'Custom'. Then follow the on-screen instructions.
A little more detail about the "how to" of all updates is appreciated.
Agreed. But I don't think Sling have ever 'done' Release Notes so I wouldn't hold your breath
Thanks for using our Answers Forum! I know that when we changed our website a lot of customers were lost on how to add those customer remote files. Luckily enough, we have updated our database to cover the new website as well. I'll post the new link for you below:

Might be worth noting there is a bug in http://newwatch.slingbox.com. If you install a Custom BIN file that has a code between 0-1999 then the system ignores the Custom file and simply installs the built-in version, which rather defeats the object. So until the bug is fixed make sure you only use BIN files that have codes between 2000-2046.
