what does that suppose to do? It doesn't seem to turn off my slingbox 500. Can slingPlayer turn on/off my Fios box and/or slingBox remoteluy since I don't use it all the time?
It turns off your set top box (cable/satellite box).
When you disconnect from your Slingbox, it enters an idle state (much like a cable/satellite box or TV that's been turned "off" via remote control) and awaits the next time you connect.
The virtual remote you set up with your Slingbox should, in fact, power your cable/satellite box on and off. Are you utilizing the external IR Emitter Pyramid that came with the Slingbox?
