I assume you have already done a proper Forum Search for your model number in case other people have already answered your question ?
If so and that didn't help then check out this thread: https://community.sling.com/message/10363#10363
Come back if it that doesn't help either.
Perhaps Corey should be explaining why Sling can't produce the remote themselves but rely on my good nature to help out people they refuse to help.
And neither of you appear to have done as I asked and carried out a Forum search for 'Linkbox' ? If you had you would have found this post :
where I spent some time building a Custom Remote for this box for a user called 'felik'. He didn't have the good manners to even reply. So try that one.
Sometimes I despair.
Just to respond about what you wrote I would like to take a few lines.
Corey from sling support never said sling would not help me with the remote!in fact ,he said that would take a longer time to give back to me what I need it.
Also he said that you are doing a great job helping people with custom remote files.
I told him that you made a custom for my limesat air and I was trying to contact you and he said that you would be the fast and best for a short time respond.
I did try to find the remote on the forum and tried to register on jp1 with no success .i did show your e-mail to him and the search I had done to that moment.
I don't know your motivation to help sling media clients
And I believe I said "please" and for sure would say thank you.
If that is not enough to satisfy you good will
Perhaps you should charge or ask for a simbolic donation or perhaps sling media should hire you as a freelance .who knows.
I personally would like to learn just for the hack of it ,how to build a remote file...
I really don't have the time to dedicate to the job and because of that I have to find people like you with a good will to help.
If that it is a problem please do not worrie because of me soon or later I will get it.
I hope you are having a great day!
Fair enough, sorry for sounding off. It's just that I SPECIFICALLY asked Sling Media to tell their support staff NOT to refer people to me. I am quite happy to help, it keeps my brain active and as a long-retired chap I have the time to spend on it. But I want to reserve the right to stop at any time, so they must not rely on me always being here. They should be improving their system so they can to provide this service themselves.
And the reason for me complaining is that I specifically ask people to do a forum search in case the answer is already there. It wasn't until I had spent 15 minutes building this remote for you that I found I had already done it and it was already available on the forum. So I was a bit annoyed at the waste of time
Did you not find the Custom Remote I posted on that thread ? It was attached to my first post. It never made it to the JP1 forum as it was never proven to work as felik did not confirm it for me. And I only upload proven remotes.
Here's another copy for you to try
Linkbox 8000HD.zip 1.2 K
I agree with you on everything !
My English is not the best since I learned reading sub titles on TV .
Some time I miss info when I am wrighting because it is easier.
I did see that file and after sleep I will try the upload on my m1 with my iMac .
I will wright back with the results.
The remote file for that limesat air hd that you made few years ago helped me and I thank you again for that.only thing that did not work was the recording command pressing the red button,
The linkbox 8000 hd also is capable of recording since I just have to attach one flash drive big enough to the job.
Talk to you soon
