That is an excellent question. You can totally have someone hook up and setup the Slingbox M1 in the US and access it remotely. Once the Slingbox M1 is set up, you will then need the Slingplayer application on a computer or mobile device (iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet), then you would just need to log into the account and connect to the Slingbox.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns don't hesitate to reply.
Hope this helps,

Dear Sling Community,
I am currently living in Saudi Arabia but I have family back home in the US. Is it possible to have a family member set up the Slingbox M1 using their computer and be able to access the Slingbox with my computer without ever being close to the slingbox itself?
