I am new to the slingbox world. I just bought and hooked up a Slingbox Pro HD to the Verizon Fios standard definition Motorola QIP2500-3 box. I'm quite positive I have all the wiring correctly hooked up, but when I tried to turn on my tv or view it from my computer there is a message stating "this channel is currently unavailable. Change channel and return to this channel or call 1-866-962-1946 and enter quick code 8801-0005." I tried and tried every channel and still received this message. Is this some kind of block that Verizon Fios has setup or is this something I did wrong on my end.
Any help on this matter would be appreciated.
We need to get more information, what type of cables are you using to connect the Slingbox to the cable box? Have you tried a different configuration (composite, S-video, coaxial, component)? I recommend that you run the Setup Assistant again and confirm that you have selected the proper input.
