    "Press any key to watch TV"


      My cable box goes "to sleep" when it isnt active for a period of time.  When I bring up my slingbox player on my iPad Im not able to "wakeup" the cable box. It wont power up the box when I pull up when I use the remote to try to talk to the cable box. I have attached a picture of what I see for reference. Is anyone else having this issue.


      Thanks in advance for any help you may have,

          Hi ejerasa,


          Thank you for posting to the forums! From the guide that you are on in the screen shot you should be able to select a show and press watch now, that should "wake up" the cable box. What you could also try is pulling up the on screen remote under live TV then pressing the power for the cable box. If the remote is just not responding please let us know so we can help you with that.


          Hope this helps!


          Kind regards,
