Thanks! - @ndrew - 2011-03-01 22:58
This looks awesome. I can't wait to get home this evening and load up the SlingBox player! I've been reading this forum for about a week and I just had to register and post a big THANK YOU.
I haden't messed with XBMC since 2004 when I loaded the dashboard on my Xbox to stream movies from an FTP folder I had no need in registering as the instructions and examples given for everything (from loading XBMC on my ATV2 to learning and following the threads about the SlingBox integration) were phenomenal. To date... I have no questions.
Our society is steadily progressing down the path of "I want it now". Things like XBMC or hacking an iPhone used to be incomprehensible for non-technical people. With technology finally becoming "cool" to the masses over really the last 5-10 years, our hobby/passion/livelihood/obsession is quickly being invaded by the gimmegimmegimme generation of people that think this shit is easy so we should all just stop what we're doing and help them NOW.
Thanks for your efforts Harry. Your posts and details do NOT go unappreciated. Please know that there are other geeks out here who appreciate what you and other contributors do, and are thankful for ANY time you put into your spare time projects.

Thanks for the kind words.
Patch version 5 is up with the last set of changes requested by the devs ... hopefully this will make it into the code base.

Is there a way to configure the settings without having to compile the source code? I really do not wanna mess up my ATV.
Appreciate your work!! - Koecks - 2011-03-03 23:23
Sounds excellent can't wait for the release that includes this. Are there any guides how to make the patch on atv2?

Excellent work! I have this running successfully on one of 2 Win 7 (64) machines. I dl'd the compile from the link you gave out earlier. On the machine that it won't work on I get an error of 'MSVCR100.dll missing'. I'm not sure why. Originally it errored on both machines but I re-downloaded the file and that second try worked fine.
FYI: I have a Slingbox and a Slingbox Pro but only the standard one will output correct video and it's awesome!

Sorry, that's the only way. Once the patch makes it into the actual XBMC code base, then you'll just need to use the latest nightly build.

I haven't actually checked out this new port yet (cause I don't have any apple products at home) ... so can't help there. But the patch is very close to making it into the code base, so once that happens all you'll need is the latest nightly build.

I'm not sure what that dll is for, but you should be able to just copy it from the working machine to the same location on the non working machine where this file is apparently missing and the issue should be fixed. That error should have nothing to do with my patch, most likely just a generic XBMC error.

I just wanted to update the problem of "MSVCR100.dll missing".
It has to do with C++, I installed Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable and it fixed my problem.
I know it's been said before but thank you Harry for the work you did on this!

Will this code only run on Windows and Linux? Will it run on the older XBMC version for the XBOX?
Either way, excellent work on this plugin!
