    Slingbox ID needed for desktop versions of SlingPlayer

    gdugger

      I'm 600 miles from my slingbox and when I try to connect, it says auto-connecting, and then says connection attempt failed.  Two weeks ago I was able to connect and watch via a browser with no problem.  There have been no changes to the slingbox since I last cconnected.  A friend currently has the same response on his slingbox when trying to watch via a browser BUT he is able to watch his by using the desktop version of SlingPlayer.  I'm trying to get the desktop version of SlingPlayer installed on my laptop and setup asks for the slingbox ID in this format: ########--####--########--####--######## 

       

      SO where can I find that alphanumeric number?  Unfortunately, I'm not home where my slingbox is.  I suppose if I was home and connected to my home network I wouldn't need this number.  Anyone have any ideas?  This is frustrating to say the least!!
