Salutations Stearns,

As I am sure you are aware, the Slingbox is designed to allow you to watch any video source remotely from any computer with an internet connection.

A web-cam would be slightly different, normally web-cams do not have video output, they normally have a USB or Fire-wire connection. There are some software packages and web-cams that allow for remote activation and viewing. These units and programs should be able to be found under "Home Automation" or "Home Monitoring"

Hope this helps.

WHAT SKY BOX CAN I USE WITH A KV-28LS35U SONY IN SPAIN


Your TV has a SCART socket. So you can use anything from a plain "receive only" Sky box through to the recording HD boxes. As long as the box also has a SCART socket then the TV and box can be connected.

If you take a box abroad with you to leave there permanently then you'll need to think about what kind of contract (if any) you want. A Sky box without a viewing card will let you watch a broadly similar range of channels to Freeview in the UK. There's a useful comparison guide here: http://www.ukfree.tv/allchannels.php

Used Sky boxes are available cheap from Gum and the Facebook selling pages, or have a look in your local classifieds.

If you buy a recorder box, remember that the recording and Live Pause features are only available with a Sky subscription. They don't work with an expired viewing card or no viewing card at all. If you think you'd like to record programmes while abroad then consider a Freesat PVR instead. It will cost more in the short term, but you will have the same kind of functions as a Sky recorder box.

One other option is TV via the net. There's a device called Slingbox. It uses the internet to port your home's Sky box signal to you somewhere else in the world. You don't bother with a second Sky box, just add a Slingbox digitiser to the home Sky box and connect it to your internet service. In Spain, you have a Slingbox receiver connected to the internet and your TV. What you've then got is control of the UK Sky box, and those signals sent to you in Spain via a web connection. You operate the Sky box in the same way you would at home. The difference is that the TV is 1500 miles away.

Slingbox relies on you having a decent internet service in Spain. That might not be practical, or possible, or even desirable. But if you want to have your full Sky package in a second location without forking out for a whole year's subscription then it is one solution that wiorks.

How does a slingbox work


Think of Slingbox as Netflix on your Set Top Box for your cable provider. It allows you to view your stations from a mobile device, etc. Below is a bit more information.

Sling Box Pro - No network light, No light in logo, only power light on. Therefore won't connect to network. Was working fine. Tried reset button and also power off/on. Only the red power light is on.

If you are getting a light on the Sling Box indicating that it is connected and powered on, you may check your Internet connection to the receiver to make sure you are actually connected.

You can check you Internet connection on your receiver by pressing the Menu button on your remote. This will display the Main Menu on your TV screen. Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 9 (Broadband Setup). Once you are on the Broadband Setup screen, press 1 (Network Setup). An IP address should display on the Network Setup screen. You can also run a connection test on your receiver. If you continue to have problems connecting, you can give Sling Box a call to troubleshoot the Sling Box. Here is a link: http://support.slingbox.com/go/home. I hope this helps.

I cannot connect my sling player to my slingbox. i am being asked for a 32No code, i have no idea where i get this code from. both boxs are on wifi turbo connections, i have the various codes from both...


That number is the security code for the wireless connection: it was created by you when the connection has been established for the first time. If you no longer have it then the only thing you can do is to reset both devices and do the setup all over again. And make a note with all the connection data for later keeping.The entire setup can be done following this

Cannot control Vip222 with sling classic


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.
