    Remote Control Only Mode for SlingPlayer for iPhone and iPad

    ACC5859970

      My Slingbox is connected to the only Cable TV device I have which in installed in my living room. Thus, one way I often use my Slingbox for is to watch my Cable TV on my bedroom. I have my MacBook Air connected to my bedroom TV set and I use SlingPlayer Web to display the Slingbox stream on it. It works really nice. However, when I want to change, lets say, the channel, I have to stand up and go to my MacBook and change that there. I am wondering how great it could be if the SlingPlayer app I already have on my iPad could have a "Remote Control Only" mode. That is, in this mode, I would not use my iPad to watch the Slingbox stream but I would use only the virtual remote control to control the Slingbox so that it would not disconnect another active device already receiving the Slingbox stream (in my example my MacBook Air running SlingPlayer Web). Hopefully, this would be very easy to do as I believe that everything you need to do that is already inside the SlingPlaye app for iPad and IPhone.

          Hey ACC5859970,

           

          This function has been added to the SlingPlayer for iPad. When in Gallery or Guide on the iPad, click on the channel you wish to tune to and it should give you an option to connect on the iPad or change the channel on TV. The TV option would be the other device you are viewing on, or if you are in the same room as the Slingbox it would be the TV the Slingbox is connected.

           

          Below is a link that will be able to further explain this feature:

              Dear Anthony,

               

              Thanks for your answer. However, I am afraid that the features, Guide and Gallery, that are mentioned in your email and in the document you referred to in your email are not available in SlingPlayer in Brazil.

               

              Hopefully, they will be released here soon.

               

              Best regards,

               

               

              Alex
