Well after holding reset for 30 seconds and waiting for 10 minutes I was able to get through the setup process without an admin password. The problem now is after the internet viewing process is done it says restarting slingbox then it is connecting to router which stays on 70 percent for a couple minutes. It then finishes up and offers a screen to fine tune settings for ipad, android, etc, but then the network connection is lost and the network light just flashes.
Tried resetting again and same problem occurs.
Thank you for participating in our online forum community here! I'm glad you were able to get past the admin password setup. I can certainly see how not being able to complete the internet viewing setup can be a little confusing and frustrating, it sounds like port forwarding has to be done on your router.
Here are a few links to help try and troubleshoot the issues. Let me know if this helps?
Hope this helps, reply with more details if necessary!
