    Adding a second M1 on same network


      I currently have an M1 and now I want to add a new M1 to a different cable box. I have port forwarding set up at 5301 on my first box but not sure what port to assign on the new one. Can anyone help?

          This is what you can try to do, it might work.

          Once the second slingbox is installed > disable the UPNP on your router and assign another port to the MAC address /or static IP of the second slingbox.

          Reset the 2nd slingbox and run once again the setup and this should help you add a new slingbox in your network

            I understand that you would like to add a second Slingbox M1 to a different cable box and you have your first Slingbox M1 assigned to port 5301. Below is a helpful link:

            What is a port?


            "If you have more than one Slingbox on your network, each one receives its own port number, incremented by one: for example, port 5202, port 5203, and so on ... up to 5225."


            Thank you,
