With the SlingPlayer for mobile phones applications, the virtual remote skin does not appear the same way it does on tablets or your PC/MAC. This is due to the smaller screen size. You should, however, have the same commands available under the "miscellaneous" tab. Within SlingPlayer for Android Phones, when you click on the remote icon it will bring up three tabs at the top of the screen. The first is a d-pad which allows you to use the left, right, up, down and ok/select buttons of your remote. The second is a keypad which allows you to manually type in numbers to change the channel. The third is miscellaneous which will have all of your DVR commands, power on/off, last channel etc (the options available under the MISC tab depend on your cable/satellite box capability/functionality).
