      Hi,

       

      I´m from germany and I have buyed a Slingbox M1...now I want to make the set up and in the file "Choose country" there is no germany listed. Please help me if you can to improve the setup.

      Thanks in advance for your kindly help.

          Hello Tanja,

           

          When this asks for the country and zip code, it is asking for help with the Zap2it guide, which is a 3rd party application  we use as kind of a quick guide. Zap2it doesn't have a guide for Germany, so what I would suggest to do is pick the US or Canada and just use a random zip/postal code from that area. This way, you can complete the setup and get the Slingbox running.

           

          I hope this helps!!

              90210 (Beverly Hills) is my favourite

               

              This question comes up very regularly.  I find it inexplicable that Sling haven't added an 'Other' option to the country list that would bypass the TV Provider and Guide selection process.    Don't suppose the moderators know why it hasn't been done ?
