Hi, I have recently moved my Slingbox and can not get it working since. I have this hooked up to a Dish Network VIP 622 DVR with the RCA Cables hooked up to the output of TV2 (I had always gotten TV2 on it before) on the back of my Dish Box and into the RCA matching input no the back of the Slingbox.
I have the IR Remote plugged in, the ethernet connection and power in per the intructions, too, on the Slingbox.
When I try to "Watch" via Slingbox.com, it shows MY SLINGBOX in the directory of my account, yet says it is unconfigured. As I click on that, it says that the Slingbox is detected. Then as I proceed, all looks good as "Slingbox is up to date with the newest software." After I hit next from that screen, my PC churns and burns for a few minutes with the hourglass showing so that I can not click on anything else. After a few minutes, I get the message that "The connection attempt fails. Make sure that the Slingbox you are trying to watch is on, connected properly, set up for remote viewing and not blocked by firewall."
I am going crazy trying to figure this out. The power is on, and I have hit reset every time I try. As I double check the Support screen, it shows the matching Public IP, Private IP and Port of 5001. I have both used the Set Up wizard to manually remove the firewall and done with without the wizard to no avail. I have even gone to my control panel and turned off the firewall for everything.
The Slingbox is shown in my network, a 2WIRE 2701HG-B Gateway and the Sling website shows that I have accessed my box as I try this, but it will not connect or let me configure things.
I have even tried unplugging everything, resetting the router and the SOLO by unplugging it too, with no luck.
It worked fine until the location of the box was moved. The DISH NETWORK TECH pulled all the wires out and re-connected it, so I did not see what was hooked up where before he did that. The folks at Dish will not help me with this since SLINGBOX is not their product, even though I got my SOLO from them.
I know I have read on some of these posts that something may have burned out, but both lights are on, it flashes as it should when reset, too. I just got this last November, so it is under warranty, just off tech support.
Any help would greatly be appreciated! THANKS!
