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...

Same here. Error connecting to sling box but sling is on the same internal network.
I understood with latest xbmc build no adding is needed?
Just enter the link with sling://username:pass@IP

Right?

Has anyone attempted to connect to a Dish 722K receiver with the Sling adapter? Looks there looks to be a change in the username which is preventing access.

As far as I understand I can add video by entering
sling://username:password@slingboxaddress:port

How can I doublecheck that the username, password, IP and port I use are correct ??

Not really, is it? I thought that I have some complex way to play sling in XBMC, but no way that I can switch channels, etc.

Anyone else noticed jumpy picture and audio discontinuity on Slingbox playback with the latest xbmc git builds? I rebuilt from the latest git tree with mythtv support and realised now Slingbox playback in unwatchable. Trying again but compiling with external ffmpeg to see if it's better.

Have a read of http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Slingbox_Client

It works well for viewing the current channel on the slingbox, but I havn't tried to implement channel changing yet.

It looks like only buttons 0-9 and channel up/down are supported at the moment.

First post. Hello everyone - been using XBMC for one day now - absolutely love it. I have tons of addons - love the skins - great all-around program. The only thing I couldn't figure out yesterday was how to get slingplayer working. I just perused all the comments and I think I found my problem, but I'm not home to confirm it, so I thought I'd ask:

The slingbox name you give it at setup - and the slingbox live login are not used in the username slot - is that right? What everyone is supposed to use is Administrator - yes? Followed by your password.

Thanks for any help - I'm sure this threw a lot of people off.

I'm going to answer my own question for anyone who was curious.

Yes - everyone needs to use Administrator - it's the only option that works.

Now to figure out the custom settings to get higher resolutions, and how to change the channels with an apple tv remote.

As far as I know, Administrator and Viewer will work.

You have to set up a view only user name to use Viewer, and they cant change channel.

Thanks, let me try this tomorrow. I am a bit confused reading the posts in this forum whether / how "channel up / down" works. Do I read this correctly that the channel change does not work with an Apple Remote?
