I hate to be the bearer of bad news but in my experience of these forums every time someone has reported the
"This Slingbox was not originally designed to be used in USA"
error message the eventual result has been that the box has 'fried'. You need to contact Sling Support to see if they will replace it.
I don't get your reply because the term "fried" means the unit does not turn on or respond to any action.
Your answer seems to be misplaced...
As I mentioned above that the unit does work but the remote doesn't have the install options for the DVR video input device. All other options exist.
I need the "Remote" install options.
Apparently, when a unit has the error message "not designed for use in the USA" it does not present the USA remote options.
This was a big problem, I'm told a while back.
Does anyone else have an answer or experience with how to work around this issue?
As Alanrichey42 mentioned, have a look at this discussion about the same issue you are having.
