Like many before me I'm having trouble getting my Slingbox to connect to my new Cisco Explorer 9865HDC DVR which I have through Cox. Still getting nothing from the remote that seems to work for others, Cox Explorer 8642HDC.
I am wondering if it has to do with the IR reception? There seem to be some reports that IR is turned off on these boxes and that you need an external IR receiver. Can anybody confirm this?
I've checked the IR codes for this box and have confirmed it uses the same codes as all the other Cisco Explorer boxes so any of then should work. There is a Custom Remote for these boxes at Cisco and Scientific Explorer 8xxxx and 4xxx Series if you want to give it a try.
