Thank you for using our forums website! I understand your brother wishes to view the Slingbox, but is unable to and I can see how this could be causing some frustration. The Slingbox 500 no longer generates a Slingbox ID. If you are trying to give other people access to your Slingbox, you are able to make a guest account for them to access it.
To give your brother access to your Slingbox, I would recommend following the steps in the aticle below.
If you have any other questons regarding this issue, you could give us a call at 1-877-467-5464. We are open seven days a week, from 10:00am to 10:00pm EST.
Hope this helps!
