As of June 1, 2011, the Slingbox code is part of XBMC, so all nightly builds made after this date will contain the Slingbox code. When I have some spare time I will add a wiki article regarding this, etc.

Take a look at post #86 http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=722044&postcount=86 for details on the SlingboxSettings.xml file.

What you are currently running is compiled on June 10, I believe, so it already contains the Slingbox code and should be ready to go. If you want more details, etc. though, take a look at the first post on this thread where I've summarized things.

Now that the Slingbox source code is part of XBMC, I would like to request that all end user questions, problems, etc. be directed to the XBMC General Help and Support forum and not be posted here, since this thread was created to deal with the development of this functionality and development is now complete.
If you'd like to get my attention regarding a certain thread posted in the XBMC General Help and Support forum, feel free to send me a PM with a link to the thread, however, please do not ask questions in your PM, etc. Please post all questions, etc. in the actual thread and simply send me a link.

Just upgraded to the latest nightly. It worked like a charm. I'm a happy camper now
Hope you'll increase the resolution and bitrate in the future.
Many Thanks Harry!

Would appreciate it if you can insert all necessary info to setup the Slingbox Client on the wiki: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Slingbox_Client

Will this work with a remote slingbox server, if I can get the remote IP address. Assuming the address is fixed, or at least known?

Thanks for creating the wiki page. I'll try to add more info when I find some spare time, which has been at a premium lately

What exactly do you mean by "slingbox server" ... are you simply referring to a remote Slingbox? If that's the case, then yes this will work with it. Or has Sling Media released some sort of server I'm not aware of?

Is there an option somewhere to enable or increase the buffer? I'm watching now my Slingbox on ATV2 and it was very easy to configure, but the stream is a little bit slow, intermittent, even with a good internet connection on both sides. It works perfectly using the original Slingplayer for PC, Mac or Iphone, so I guess it has something to do with buffering.
Also... how can I change channels on ATV2? I do not use the infrared transmitter, as the stream comes directly from the coaxial cable.
