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.

Hay! this realy works to control dish VIP 222!!! GREAT fix and easy! you need to set the Dish RemoteIR to #1 then it will match the sling box IR and everything works great.

using the dish remote:
press menu 2 times
now check the IR remote code box..is it set to #1?
to make it #1: press and hold Sat button for three sec Light blinks
press 1
press #
press red record button
the box should now read #1........

Dish network told me that the vip 222 isn't on the setup list because it's incompatible with slingbox. don't know if that's true so swapped to the vip722k and I still can't setup my remote viewing so it will work. Been working on this for months. Good luck

I'm trying to download sling TV on my tablet and it keeps saying its Incompatible. Its a noble dual core with android 4.1 jelly bean? Help?


The current Sling TV app requires Android 4.4 or higher. This is given in the requirements on the Google Play Store page for the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sling&hl=en . Scroll down to the Additional Information section.

I know that the Sling site claims that the app works with Android 4.0.3 on the Devices page. However, they haven't updated the site properly. On their help site, they call for KitKat 4.4. See http://help.sling.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/How-do-I-watch-Sling-TV-on-an-Android-Device-36/?l=en_US&c=Topics%3AWST_AYD_Android .

If you are prepared to tinker with your device (rooting the device or similar activities) so that you can side-load the app, one older version of the Sling app can be found here: http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/sling-tv-l-l-c/sling/sling-4-0-5-154-3-release/sling-television-4-0-5-154-android-apk-download/ . Other versions of the Sling app are also available; check the Min system requirements below the size of the download package. However, these versions may not communicate properly to the Sling server any more.

I wish that I had better news for you. (Note: I have never tried to install an older app on my Android device.)

I have a 55pfl5601 and would like to know what I need or need to do to setup sling tv on the phillips tv


If you already have established a WIFI connection from your TV to your router then download the sling TV app. Go online and go to sling's website, open an account and have the mac address of the TV handy so they can authorise the TV.
