A couple of questions - Colestin - 2011-09-26 08:47
I am running through this setup and am kind of a n00b. I am trying to use my slingbox remotely and am confused on what ip I would use to setup access. My sling box is in Colorado and I am trying to access it with my AT2 in North Carolina. I can access through my laptop just fine so remote access is setup. Now here is where I am lost, my modems ip address for example is 184.108.40.206 (fake) and the LAN ip of the my slingbox from my router is 192.168.1.110.
I have port forwarding setup for 5001 to be open and understand I have to input sling://administrator: password:/5001.... What do I put for my ip address? Sorry if this is somewhere else I ran through a lot of posts here and never saw this question asked before.
Thanks in advance for any response or help.
The model I am using is the solo HD and nightly build installed.

LAN IP is for connecting inside your Local Area Network, WAP IP is for connecting remotely. Sounds like you need to use your WAN IP.
Also, any word on Pro-HD support. Harry, if you still need access to a Pro-HD model, PM me. I'm fairly certain I have everything on the server side configured correctly. However, I'm not getting any response in xbmc.
Going crazy..... - lumberjackjohnn - 2011-10-20 02:35
I'm going crazy and don't know where I'm going wrong with this....
I input my details sling://administrator:########@87.###.##.187/197:5001
It fails to log in....I am living in the states and my slingbox is in the UK and i have no issue connecting over here using the slingplayer app so I know it works. I have pasted my log so if anyone can help that would be awesome...

I have a question does this work with appletv 2
The vulkano player would be nice to see Let me know if you would like to test with my vulkano
Vulkano is like a sling box
vulkano is also know as hava or monsoon.

I can get this working great as far as steaming thru xbmc, but cant find alot of documentaion on how to set up the remote for channel up and down. Found some in the wiki but dont quit understand it completely. Found this post
But not sure how to designate which keys on the keyboard you can choose for channel up or down. Guess what I am saying is if i find the right code to send to my sat reciever how will i know which key on the keyboard will be my channel up or down. Does anyone with experience have a simple howto on where to start with this?

as a user who was successful at 90% of getting the app to work under XBMC I will admit it was all very frustrating. Took me a lot of time. Though technically it was worth it, to see this actually work. This is not a polished solution (exampled by the channel selection control - and how difficult that is for the variety of systems); as only one person (the developer) put his time into this.
Highly recommend that you find an alternative overall solution. You will spend a lot of time getting this working - perfected. Maybe eventually the APPLE TV will have full functionality of a browser, that can run the SLINGBOX browser app.
For myself I just attached my full WIN7 computer to my TV with a $50 HDMI card. And $50 Bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

I have recently installed a Sling adapter to my Dish 722k receiver. Through looking at different forums I have found that the username is "admin" and not administrator. As such, I'm not able to set the correct string as the source code appears to validate that the username is either "administrator" or "viewer". Anyone else have this issue or can recommend an alternative.
Change the channels - dasilva333 - 2011-12-12 02:25
Hey guys I took the xbmcremote code from github:
Then I modified it to allow me to change channels using that app, it works pretty well and pretty easily. Basically next to the Send Text menu option there is a new option called Change Channel which brings up a text prompt, type in the channel and it changes it.
Modified XBMC Remote for changing channels
Basically the way it works is by using the xbmcHttp API to make three calls to change the channel.
1.opens up the prompt to change the channel
2.then i call the native sendText function that comes with the app which reads the text inputted and enters it into the prompt
3.then i commit the channel using this command
Also the Skip Forward and Skip Back button (next to play, pause) in the Android app is mapped to the channelup, channeldown button.
The way it works is pretty simple, you press channel up and it sends the hex code 04 (in my case) and channelup is mapped to whatever you have in keys.h or keymap.xml or keyboard.xml I'm not sure because I didnt modify those files but there is more relevant info found here (for the atv2 people who want to change the left right keys):
Also relevant for debugging in advancedsettings
is <displayremotecode>true</displayremotecode> which will allow you to look through the debug log and see what its capturing when you try sending it commands using devices like a gamepad or a tv remote (harmony in my case) but NOT for the android xbmcremote codes.
Speaking of codes I was able to figure out which codes map to my comcast cable set top box using tried and true brute force, I pretty much went into slingbox windows app, copied down all the ir codes it gave me under settings, converted them to hex and mapped two at a time to my harmony's channelup/channeldown command allowing me to figure out what they all do, sortof. To do so I basically just edit the SlingboxSettings.xml file put in two hex codes then press the corresponding buttons on the remote, stop the video, modify the file, repeat.
Comcast Cable Box Mappings:
not sure if its relevant but heres what i've got so far:
decimal - hex - function
09 - 09 - 1
10 - 0A - 2
11 - 0B - 3
12 - 0C - 4
13 - 0D - 5
14 - 0E - 6
15 - 0F - 7
16 - 10 - 8
17 - 11 - 9
18 - 12 - 0
1 - 01 - power toggle
4 - 04 - channel up
5 - 05 - channel down
6 - 06 - volume show?
7 - 07 - unknown
8 - 08 - mute
21 - 15 - last (prev channel)
22 - 16 - unknown?
24 - 18 - unknown?
25 - 19 - unknown?
26 - 1a - unknown?
27 - 1b - unknown?
28 - 1c - unknown?
29 - 1d - record dvr?
31 - 1f - unknown?
32 - 20 - unknown?
33 - 21 - quick menu
35 - 23 - full guide
36 - 24 - back key?
38 - 26 - up key
39 - 27 - down key
40 - 28 - left key?
41 - 29 - right key?
42 - 2a - info/menu
43 - 2b - pagedown (guide?)
44 - 2c - pageup
Finally on the topic of custom keys like Full Guide, Last, Menu I think it would be possible by writing some sort of plugin that will communicate with the existing Slingbox code's SendReceiveMessage
Source Code Here:
And the plugin will basically be activated via the xbmcHttp API, I'm guessing with ExecBuiltIn
And at that point it would be just a simple matter of writing a programmable layout on the client side with the buttons and the hex mappings that will send the code via http to the plugin to the native slingbox code.
Stay tuned for more updates as I experiment on that

I am thinking of buying slingbox and was wondering if anyone can post some pictures of how it looks in xbmc, also about these things -
1. Do we have Slingbox Pro HD working?
2. ATV2 xbmc nightly - is it working yet? - if so anyone has any pics and if ATV2 remote or any physical remote works for changing channels (if not ffwd misc features)
Happy New Year 2012 (in advance) to every one.

I'm running XBMC live installed on a USB flash drive. what exactly needs to be done to update the remote config to the comcast box's hex mappings?
