      Does the remote control that comes with the slingbox only work in the same room the slingbox is in? Can't use if at a different house streaming via chromecast?

          Hello HumptyD,

           

               The remote control that comes with the Slingbox 500/SlingTV units only control the Slingbox and can only be used when pointing the remote directly at the Slingbox unit itself. This remote controls the Slingbox's Onscreen User Interface, which allows you to change settings, as well as launch the applications on the Slingbox 500/SlingTV such as YouTube, DishWorld, and BlockBuster On-Demand.

           

           

          Hope this helps!
