Or has Sling Media released some sort of server I'm not aware of?Yes Harry. You answered the question. Hope I can access my slingbox over the Internet. If I do not have a port blocked on the remote router-modem. The sling web site gets through, so assume I can get through with the xbmc tool also. More testing.

After trying this out last night. Couple more questions. It is mentioned during setup that the default port is 5001 for the slingbox. Is that TCP or UDP or public or private or both (I can just set up both)? Most routers-modems have a built in firewall that will prevent communication outside the LAN to the internet (if activated correctly). So I assume? that I need to open up this port on my remote LAN (or on both of the two LANs remote and local) to allow communication between XBMC-SLING and the remote slingbox?

Schedule channel change - cooli - 2011-06-27 17:57
Is there any way with your plugin or via an http request to schedule a channel change
- rdoac - 2011-06-27 20:20
I have an issue with one slingbox but not the other. One slingbox changes channels correctly, the other hangs after sending the channel change request, it sticks while buffering. If I stop it, right after changing channel (takes a while to stop) then restart it, the new channels streams in ok. However, if I just leave it, xbmc sits on buffering and does nothing else. Sometimes I've had to kill and restart xbmc to stop it..

How do you change the resolution? Are you doing that in XBMC on ATV2, or directly in the Slingbox?

For anyone posting problems/asking for help ... there's not much to go on without full debug logs ... so if you'd like me to take a look at your issue you'll need to supply full debug logs. Also, please take a look at http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=819725&postcount=234
Thank you for being a XBMC and Slingbox customer

you have to ssh into apple tv 2 and place xml file into it
here is the code create it in notepad and name it
and then put into directory : var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/SlingboxSettings.xml
test what resolution you can get to work by changing width and height in the xml file. i could only get upto 640 by 478, no width above 480, see what works for you
