No. You are very smart. It took me a month of trial and error spare time doing tests with this all to make it finally work. And that was only by luck in the end. But it does work.
7) Make sure that you have set your SLINGBOX to be available for INTERNET access. This is under the settings for the slingbox, where you can adjust the IP address and the internal port number, and it self tests that the SLINGBOX is available. The settings never would stick stay correct for me, as maybe my router starts to block any strange ports being used for more than two hours. At least I speculate this. And my box only worked after I did this.

Thanks for working on this Harry Muscle!
I have been playing around with your work on a slingbox pro HD. I was under the impression it was not working at all at this point but I was able to get a mediocre picture with some color disfiguration and jitter. If there is anything I can help you with please let me know.
This seems like a really interesting project and I would really like to see this get completed.

I have read almost everything on this subject and have tried everything. I believe i have everything i need for this to work, but no success. I have the most recent nightly build, made sure port forwarding was correct, and am using a slingbox solo.. any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks...

Harry Muscle Wrote:You should be able to map two of the buttons on the AppleTV remote to the PageUp and PageDown buttons via the keymap.xml file. It's not super user friendly but it's doable.
Has anyone been able to do this? How can you make sure that the changes are only for the slingbox? I'd like to use << and >> for channel up/down, as they have no function for the slingbox now, but I don't know where to start to change it for just the slingbox and not for any of the other parts in XBMC.
 Harry, is there a special windowname for the Slingbox client? How is the slingbox client handled? If it has a special case the keymap change might be easy, if it is fullscreenvideo then it's going to be very difficult, as it would change the keymapping also for regular video files. (in which case I'd have to look for a skin that might put in some magic)
[edit2] Is there any way to make a favorite for a specific channel? Right now I just favorite "watch slingbox" and it will start the slingbox on whatever channel it last had. Is there any way to change the favorite so that the slingbox client would send a channel change to the slingbox if you start that particular favorite? That way you could have your preferred channels easily reachable witout having to resort to other remotes for changing channels.

Had to register to thank you for your great work. Sure 320x240 is kinda blurry, but it beats no feed at all. So thanks!
It took me the longest time to get this going, because I didn't even think to check ports and inputs. The defaults weren't anything like my setup, and I can't figure why this would be the case.
My port was 5102, and my input was 3. If you get no video, but you get audio you're probably on the wrong input. (That only took about half an hour to figure out). This is a Slingbox Solo, also bought from Woot a little while ago.
Will the work on unencrypting the HD Pro enable higher resolution on the Solo's?

I used to be able to change channels, but the latest XBMC git tree doesn't let me, just returns to the xbmc menu after pushing the button.. Has something changed? Do I now need a default keymap file?

Problem with 64-bit platforms? - znanev - 2011-09-22 20:33
can somebody tell me what is needed in order to run the Slingbox plugin for XBMC under Windows 7 64-bit?
Yesterday I played all night, after downloading the latest nightly build for windows, reading all posts in this topic, but to no avail. I was able to add sling:// as source, but when I click on Watch slingbox, nothing happened. I've even turned the debug log, but I couldn't find any error in there.
Today I decided to install this same nightly build on an old laptop running Windows Vista 32-bit. After configuring the sling:// source, clicking on Watch Slingbox in the bottom right corner appeared a message "Waiting.." (or Watching, I'm not sure exactly), and after 4-5 seconds I was able to see the video coming from my Slingbox. Beautiful!
So I now know that Slingbox plugin is working OK on 32-bit platform with Vista and not working on 64-bit platform with Windows 7. Having this in mind I played with the compatibility settings on Windows 7, but no go.
Any ideas/suggestions how to run the Slingbox plugin for XBMC in Windows 7 64-bit?
hd-pro? - patrick1 - 2011-09-24 07:00
