* Tried every signle remote in the selctions to see if any worked, None have
* Reset the box
* Ensured the IR cable is plugged in and in place. This hasn't moved since the update to the firmware but i checked just the same. The remote works the mute buttom and the volume so the IR cable is working.
Not true. Slingplayer 'hijacks' the Volume and Mute controls and uses them to control it's own volume. They are never sent to the device so will always work regardless. To confirm the IR cable is really working you need to do the camera test (http://support.slingbox.com/get/KB-5000042.html)
