    Cannot Turn Sling Box 500 on Remotely

    Visibility: Open to anyone



      I recently switched my SlingBox 500 from a DirecTV HD DVR box to a DirecTV Genie Receiver.  Since the switch, I can no longer power on my Sling Box remotely.  Additionally, while watching TV on the receiver connected to my sling box, once or twice an hour the Sling Box will randomly power on and I'll see a screen that says please wait while the sling box powers on and I have to sit there and wait for 2-3 minutes for the Sling Box to power on before I get returned to what I was watching.  Any idea what may be causing both of these issues and what I can do to resolve them?
