i need to be able to turn on my skybox using the virtual remote control as when i try to connect using slingbox it says it's currently unaccesible as it's switched off. how do i access the virtual remote to turn it on?!
I tihnk that message means the SlingBox itself is turned off, not the Skybox. If the Skybox was turned off you would get a "No Video" message and the remote would be accessible as normal.
no, the slingbox is turned on but the skybox is probably on standby and needs turning on. i've had this before but just need to turn on the power using the virtual remote... how do i access this?
In that case I don't understand your problem. Doesn't the virtual remote have a Power button on it ? I assume you have made the virtual remote visible by tapping on the remote icon ?
i'm on http://newwatch.slingbox.com/ and can't see any remote icons...
If that icon is not present then you haven't configured the input properly.
