Thank you for the link.
This version of SlingPlayer did connect to my "old" SlingBox. It then asked for my password. Unfortunately, the previous owner could not remember it and suggested that I reset it which I did. Now it's still asking me for the password! The instructions don't say anything about resetting a SlingBox nor does it provide a default password. Nuts!
Any advise? Ideas? Thought? Hints?
Thank you for however you respond
Thanks AGAIN for your help!
If you are up for my next question, our PVR brand is recognized but not the
model number. We have a Pace DC758D. Pace exists but not a DC758D
therefore I can't control which channel (or ON or OFF) it's on.
I did a Sling software update which didn't help.
Can you help figure this out?

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.
you provided a link to SlingPlayer v.2, the PC version. Thank you.
I prefer to use our Mac Air, rather than a PC, and my search of the Sling
website does not seem to have a link to "Downloads" in general or "Software
Updates" & trying to use Safari to get to "http://download.slingmedia.com"
Your ongoing help is appreciated. I'm using Mac SlingPlayer 188.8.131.522.
Clicking on the Update is the Setup screens produces a blank screen with no
way for users to figure out what's what.

Although you could easily have found it yourself by selecting Support at the top of the page and doing a search for 'Support Downloads'
But now you have it setup you can use the latest Desktop Player instead.
I just paid $16.99 for the iPad App and installed it on my iPad Mini.
The App then reports it is not compatible with my Slingbox AV SB240-100
How do I get my $16.99 back?
I read everything on the Apple App website and did not see a list of
Slingboxes that your $16.99 App was not compatible with. Is it too much
trouble for SlingMedia to show a list of incompatible devices before people
pay for the App?
Please advise if there is an iPad App that supports the Slingbox AV
SB240-100. Otherwise, how can I use this device outside of my home WiFi

Hi, I have a similar issue - the original sling box, same model. You said there is way to watch using the browser instead of the software? After installing the plugin, when I tried to watch it says my box/model isn't supported by slingplayer. Is there a way around this? The software doesn't work properly on Yosemite.
Hey Alan, I tried on all three browsers. This is the message I get:
Cannot connect to this earlier Slingbox model.
Here's more information about the Slingbox models that you can use.
Click here to learn more about upgrading your Slingbox.
Doesn't work when I get rid of the message.
And yet I tried on Windows using Parallels on my Macbook and it works fine there.
Any ideas? Not compatible with Yosemite?
A friend passed along his Slingbox AV SB240-100 hardware however he did not keep his disc/software. Current SlingPlayer Desktop software (v.5.0.92) does not recognize this device as it's looking for a serial number that's configured (8 digits, 4 digits, 8 digits, 4 digits, 8 digits) while the SB240 has 10 digits only.
I have the IP address for this device and have linked to it via Ethernet without success. Both red lights on the device are on, not flashing.
SlingPlayer sees the device but won't connect to it.
Does anyone still have the old SlingPlayer Desktop software that they used to setup a SB240-100?
Can anyone help me out?
Thank you in advance.
