Question about Sling Media The Slingbox Pro
After updating to SlingPlayer 2.0 and updating the firmware as prompted, i can no longer use the remote control in the SlingPlayer. It is greyed out!
I tried all of the above with no success. Here is what worked for me:
Download Slingplayer v1.5 from the following link:
Configure video source and the remote selections will appear. The software looks old but it works! I can finally control my slingbox solo again.

I had this problem but it happened out of the blue and not after a firmware update. I have a SlingboxPro HD and an older Slingbox. When I reconnected the old Slingbox, the remote on my HD Slingbox disappeared. Reconfiguring video sources did not work for me. I eventually had to reset the Slingbox itself and within seconds the problem was fixed. I can now use the remote again.

I had same problem too. reset slingbox pro and reinstalled the software several times then called slingbox. I told them the problem, no help since it is a software/firmware problem with no remote controls available. told 29 for testing could waive but would have to send 99 for replacement? huH...I said my slingbox works it sends video and sound locally and remotely. then offered a 20% discount on new pro-hd, 60 of 299. i told them amazon selling for 239....what more could they offer off. nothing. very frustracted with them contacted ftc also. slingbox had the nerve to send customer service survey...i gave them the ftc complaint no.

 Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the DCT*
and an AC outlet.
 If the DCT* is connected to a switched outlet on another
unit, verify that that unit is powered on.
 Press the POWER button on the DCT* front panel instead
of the remote control. The batteries in the remote control
may be depleted
 The DCT* may have received a software update and
may not power on while the new software is being
installed. Try again in a few minutes.
