I mean that the image and the functionality are not connected. For each remote Sling (or me) will produce the IR file (known as a BIN file) that produces the correct IR codes. If their graphic team happen to have designed a realistic image they will link the image to the BIN file. But they/I could link any image they liked. For example, I use a Tivo image to control my 'unsupported' Bush DVR. For normal unsupported devices we use the default image.
Sling have removed the Volume buttons on purpose, as you should be controlling the volume via the Slingplayer, not the original device. But I can map them to the Page+/- buttons if you really want them.
I have just checked the Logitech Harmony IR database where I get the codes and for the Numericable La Box they do not define a Home function. So the only way to find that is by trial and error.
I too want to install remote bins for "La Box" to use with numericable - I have looked in jp1 remote
I see several sagemcom, but not my model
my model is Sagemcom EGC1421 NC HD
253434648 - D01
thanks for the help
Why didn't you test the Numericable remotes at JP1 ? I reckon the HD Box would have worked. Ignore the instructions in the download and use http://placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/how-to-install-a-custom-remote-onto-the-slingbox/
My previous email or post was just to inquire if there are codes for this "LaBox" as I was using a cable box from numericable (sagem)
that fails quite often. Well, it failed too much, and today I swapped it out for the "LaBox" and the new box works great
(tv internet telephone) and now I want to upload to the slingbox the corresponding codes to make the slingbox work.
I have tried all 7 sagemcom files from JP1 - none of them work - I did use your suggested " how-to " from phaseshift - no problem at all
to upload - they just do not work
i know that the infrared is working on the box as I have another couple of boxes to change channels from our kitchen using rf-link;
I transmit from the kitchen and in the living room the rf-link receiver outputs the infrared to the Labox - this works
so now I am stuck and do not know what to use - I would have thought that there are many LaBox s working here in France and that
somebody has a slingbox attached
sagemcom EGC1426 NC HD 253604930 - A01 s/n 615211114966
and from JP! files
Hope you can assist me
You mentioned - I reckon the HD Box would have worked but I could not find this
also I tried to response to
the email address jive-------------------------------------------jivesoftware.com but it bounced
thanks for the quick reply, i just tried the numericable Hd file from JP1 , but not working
here is an excerpt from the readme file
This ZIP file contains 2 BIN files.
V2010_PL.bin for USA (NTSC) Slingboxes
V2010_RV.bin for non-US (PAL) Slingboxes
the RV file will not upload
also, this file dates to Aug 2011 - so maybe a premature file for the Labox
still at ends on what to do ?
thanks again for suggestions
I think a little bit of confusion here.
First of all, I have been using the instructions as per your post of Oct 15, 2015
this I have used for all the files found in JP!, the instructions are not the problem, the procedure to upload files to the slingbox works really good.
my comments in my last post were only from the README file that was associated with the numericable HD BOX file that was found on JP1;
but with the date of Aug 2011. Numeric HD Box Memory
I think the problem is to have the proper bin files to upload for this " LaBox"
to summarize; I have used the " http://placeshiftingenthusiasts.com/how-to-install-a-custom-remote-onto-the-slingbox/"
to upload all the pre mentioned files found on JP1 including the older numericable HD BOX + all the sagemcom (7) files also on JP1
hope this clarifies the problem a little better
You were right on - I went back and read again your instructions again - number 6 where you mention to use a phone camera to check the IR
blaster - I took for granted that it was working, but while doing the installation of the new box, lots of cables were touched/moved - well the IR blaster
cable that plugs into the slingbox was not seated correctly. (was not viewed with the phone camera)
Now, the remote buttons work fine (using JP1 numericable HD BOX file)
Have not checked everything as I must myself learn the functionality of the new box.
But, the "last button fires but has no effect and I cannot get to channel 23 it goes to 3 - I remember back when there is a setting for this;
but it is late
so many thanks for your help
Sorry Alan I had to create this new discussion because I cannot reply to the previous answers due to a bug?
What do you mean by the image is not irrelevant?
Could you please add on the remote the missing (function) missing buttons for Home and the Volume which are on the real remote?
