Hi, I bought then installed the slingbox solo on my Verizon converter via A/V source. The slingbox solo has power, a solid red light and the remote control IF cables are connected.
Download the software for Window PC use, installed, selected a language, clicked on program start, but received a "Slingbox Directory" message: "Unable to locate slingbox, Please ensure that WI-FI is enabled and the Ethernet cable is unplugged. If your device does not support WI-FI, please plug in Ethernet cable to your Slinbox. Try again."
I click on try and receive: Slingbox on network" "D44B9" and "!" then same "Unable to find message."
The Verizon converter does have a Ethernet slot to connect, but it is not a router. The router is nearly 80 feet away. Do I need to install SB there? If so, will it control that other TV, which is not an option. Can I connect SB just to the original converter A/V without that Ethernet option or do I need to buy more stuff, as in the hidden cost of ownership?
