I appreciate the reply.
I've tried 3 different IR blasters - no dice.
Also the 350 has an internal IR emitter and apparently doesn't rely on an external one (from my reading)
So I can only assume that somehow the IR emission died after a week or so of working - which I still find strange.
Would be nice if Sling had diagnostics that could be run to detect.
Worked fine for weeks.
Needed it today - no dice - the remote buttons are non-responsive on the PC virtual remote image (which in reading does seem to happen to others - like all you can do is control volume and mute which is really not sending IR commands anyway - rest of the buttons nada)
Also - on the app - the remote icon is essentially dithered out and unclickable.
I have reset the box a couple of times and re-configured etc. - no dice.
Seems strange - but it also seems like this has happened to others.
Is this something that is common and could be central to Sling and will get better? Or is this unique to me.
Using FIOS Arris boxes - and all was fine until yesterday.
