    SlingPlayer won't log in, will only turn on if i manually turn on directv box


      I've had my slingbox for about 5 days now and have been using it without any problems.  As of yesterday the slingplayer that i've downloaded onto my computer along with the internet viewing will not log into my account.  It says to test my internet connection or firewall which both have been checked and are fine.  I tried turning on the directv satellite box manually and instantly my slingplayer worked.  I turned off my satellite box and tried turning on my slingplayer and again it wouldn't work.  is there some connection issue? and is there a way to turn off my directv box from the slingplayer? thanks
