The very first time you plug in the Slingbox you MUST have a device on the same network to perform the initial setup. This is to get the router and Slingbox talking so the router can subsequently direct remote access to the Slingbox. After that you can do practically anything from a remote location.
Sounds good. The Slingbox has been set up for several years and is working
fine with my phone.
But how do access that slingbox then from afar. Obviously it doesn't show
up in the "Slingbox Directory" on the remote phone which has never been
Older slings allow an ID to be entered to find them, but what do you do for
an M1 Sling when the SLing and the phone are a long way apart?

We haven't installed the Ap on the remote phone yet as I was awaiting some
indication it would be worthwhile doing. Your response indicates that all
should work, and I will assume it will and move forward with efforts.
Thanks ever so much for your quick and useful responses. [:-)}

Is it possible for someone away from home to add our Slingbox to the Android SlingPlayer (just added to the phone)?
All attempts seem to want to initially do a setup by connecting to the sling's wifi or ethernet connection, but that is not possible and the sling is a M1 which apparently has no ID to use.
Everything must be setup away from home using the Internet only.
