imup2it Wrote:I can get my slingbox pro to work on (my atv2) XBMC with out an issue. I use the format as posted but less the port and input as default is fine.

The issue I have is to do it remotely from another location. Instead of my internal IP of 192.168.1.xx I put in my real IP. I have tryed with adding the port and without, I have also put port forwarding for 5001 on my netgear 3700 and when this did not work, I used port triggering. I have tryed it as FTP, HTTP and custom.

Any IdeasConfused

Both my Iphone and Android apps work anywhere.

Who do you use for internet? Do you have port forwarding working on anything else?

On a side note, are you able to change the Slingbox channel from your ATV?

"input" at the end of your string needs to be a number like 1,2,3,4. I'm watching through svideo, so mine is 2.

I have been following this thread for a while and have just ordered a Slingbox Pro - any change of getting a definite confirmation on how well it works through XBMC and if the issue with channel changing has been resolved? And finally, would a Slingbox/player ever be distributed on the XBMC platform through an add-on?

Hope to hear a bunch of great success stories from Slingbox/XBMC users...

I can even make changes in the xml file but it will not change...

But, if i make a change where i set it to 640 * 480... the picture cuts in and out , turns pink, and the audio does not work?

Anyone noticed problems when using this with Frodo? I am getting picture stuttering? I think it has something to do with the new Audioengine?

Is this still in development? Any update on being able to do higher resolutions?

*If I helped, please +rep below*
Windows Media Center PVR add-on (pvr.wmc) and Server (ServerWMC)
The XBMC team, plug-in devs, skinners, etc. do this for us for FREE in their spare time because they want to. Think about that for a second before you start bitching...

I am getting black and white static when I connect to my sling pro HD and it also forces the slingbox to switch its input to antenna from component input where my cable box is fed to.

Does anyone know why the slingbox is changing its input when i connect my Frodo xbmc instance to it using the url sling://administrator:pwd@ip.ad.ddre.ss:5001/input ?

My solution for this is now a used ROKU with a client app. Yes it cost me $50 but it just works.

Thanks to the solid information gotten from reading this thread, I've been able to obtain my password for the Sling adapter connected to my 722k, as well as learning to add sling://admin:mypwd@ip.ad.ddre.ss:5001 to the sources file in Frodo.

Problem is, the userid is 'admin' and not 'administrator'. This causes an error in the init, and the sling source doesn't connect from xbmc. Where is this checked and rejected? ...and how to fix it? From xbmc.log:

ERROR: Open - Invalid or no username specified for Slingbox: 192.168.1.100

Please help. I can't quit now!

Not exactly the overwhelming response I had hoped for. Seems easily-enough addressed by the developers. Anybody care to take a shot at answering the question? What is filtering the 'admin' username, and how can it be fixed for Sling Adapter users? Thanks.
