    Watching slingbox DVR remotely and get blank screen


      I was watching a show on slingbox DVR on my macbook pro and paused for a minute and when I returned and clicked play, it took me out of DVR and went back to live TV. I clicked on DVR, found my show and clicked play again and it just shows a black screen. I have tried clicking on other shows I DVR'd and none of them play. I tried pulling it up on my i-pad and i-phone and it does the same thing. I can watch live TV and I can get to the guide to set shows to record. The only thing I cannot do is watch a recorded show. Anyone have this problem ?

          Hello 2010mcd,


          Thanks for using our forums! I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. Are you able to view your recorded shows on your tv at home without a problem? Because it sounds like it could be an issue with your cable box itself, but if it is strictly an issue with the Slingbox streaming the content, I would advise trying a reset of the Slingbox. This will ensure that the Slingbox is up to date with the latest firmware.


          Here is a link with instructions on resetting your Slingbox:



          Hope this helps!
