Question about Sling Media Slingbox AV Remote Control
Vip222 is not on the list to control with sling...Any ideas? Help
I have read elsewhere that Slingboxes required the Dish Network receivers to be set to Primary Remote Address 1.
To try a fix:
Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the Primary Remote Address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates the channel to which remote control 1 is configured.
If the Primary Remote Address of your Dish VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:
1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page
Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your slingbox remote control per the instructions in the Slingbox documentation.
