I have bought a Slingbox 500 in Europe (Netherlands), but think the device has been shipped over from the US (US powercord + converter in the box). During installation I can only select "USA" and "Canada" as the region where I am located (should be Europe). Can this be changed or is there a way around it? The problem is that all listed cable providers and listed set-up boxes are US-based. Has someone solved this issue? thanks
The purpose of that question is to make sure you have the correct Programme Guide. It has absolutely nothing to do with the operation of the Slingbox. And the use of a Programme Guide is not supported out of the USA. So just 'lie' to to it. Select USA and a ZIP a Code (90210 is my favourite) and then 'My TV a Provider is not listed'. Then carry on.
