I recently purchased the Slingbox 500 to use specifically with Chromecast at my second home with an Android Tablet off of my X1 box.
After initially running into the same problem many have and not being able to use the Slingplayer Gallery features to work on my tablet due to the need to hit enter on the X1 remote, a support individual loaded a patch and the gallery features work perfectly but only on my tablet.
Unfortunately, when I cast to the Chromecast, the problem reverts back. I've contacted support twice to no avail at this point on a fix. I'm turning to community for help before I return my Slingbox. Has any had this problem solved?
