"Welcome. Powering-up " on screen and cannot turn it off manually or remotely

I'm attaching a slingBox to it and it seems to have locked up as above.
is it the Slingbox, me, or could the unit be fried?

    The recorder uses a Linux RedHat 9 OS that boots up its Kernel after the BIOS brings it up and running. Got the dame problem - TIVO stalls during power up cycle - can't be controlled in any ways IR or touch buttons. I suspected a dead BIOS 3V motherboard battery and replaced it w/o success.
    The BIOS chip inspection shows an awkward looking blue paint mark on the 70-4C-NH chip I suspected as bad.
    Prior to the final stop, I noticed once during the power up process after using the IR remote control unit, the Tivo program stopped booting and bring the Main Menu page up...
    I personally suspected a corrupted BIOS on the chip - I left my SDR hooked up to the phone line an entire Sunday after forgetting to update the downloading sets...
    Unless you got some good technical skills and knowledge of electronics I won't recommend to mess up with fixing it... save your time and moneis...

If you have a TiVo that is stuck on powering up, you likely have a bad hard drive. See this page for more information about a TiVo that is stuck on powering up.

Try downloading the Playon app from the android marketplace and on your computer. Some tv stations have live broadcasts you are able to view through your 3g or wireless phone connection to your computer. www.playon.tv/playon has detailed instructions.

Cannot connect remotly to the slingbox


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. please check this first at your sisters house..
If you are at home of your sister and are not seeing your Slingbox in the SlingPlayer Slingbox Directory, one of two things are going on:

1. The Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router.
2. You have security software on your computer preventing it from talking to the Slingbox.
3. The network connection to your Slingbox is broken.

If the issue is that the Slingbox is not properly connecting to your router, the network light on the front of the Slingbox will either be off or be blinking.

If the network light on the front of your Slingbox is on, then the issue is probably virus or firewall software.

Your Slingbox is all set up, the Network light is on and still you can't find it in your Slingbox Directory in SlingPlayer.

Most of the time if you are at home and in this situation, the problem can be narrowed down to one of the following:

* Your router or router configuration has changed since you plugged in your Slingbox.
* Security software on your computer is preventing your Slingbox from communicating with your computer.
* You've more than one router on your home network.
* You've accidentally connected your computer to your neighbor's wireless network.

If you are using a router on the home network, routers have a built in firewall and in this case. The Slingbox uses port 5001 when it communicates with your router, so this port needs to be open for your Slingbox to send video outside of your network.

please feel free to get in touch if u have any question..

Can't use slingbox away from home . My son lives abroad and has been using it ok until we got a new router but can't now access it. Can you sort it out for us.


this will almost definitely be to do with the firewall on the router. You need to access the slingbox from inside the house and re-run the setup wizard which will attempt to configure the router for you

Cannot connect remotely


I had a similar problem with my Slingbox Pro. After some time I realized that the problem was with my router, not my Slingbox. I tried a new router, but that router didn't work well with my Slingbox and Tivo. So I put the original router back, and I plugged it into a timer that automatically turns the power off and on once a day.
