Specific Slingbox500 queery- I have Fios and use the multi-room dvr so I can access dvr content/functionality on every set top box(HD) in the house. I want to connect the SB500 to the STB in my home office as that's where the fios router is- I'd prefer a wired connection vs using the wifi.
Will I be able to access/control the dvr the same as if I connected SB500 to the actual dvr?
The Slingbox does not change any features of the cable box. It only allows you to gain access and control your cable box from a distance. As this article below explains, the Slingbox allows you to perform all functions of the cable box from anywhere including your kitchen, or in another state as long as you have a network connection.
