MTS Ultimate and Slingbox
Hi folks, looking for some help here. i am trying to set up a sling box 350 with my MTS Ultimate TV and having some trouble. When I go to the Slingbox site I get a message that " We can't find a Slingbox"

"We're searching for a Slingbox, but can't find one on your Network, or in your Sling Account"

I have gone into the 2wire and created a pinhole for the Slingbox. What I am wondering is if anyone has had success getting the Slingbox to work and if there are further settings that I need to adjust.

Thanks for your help.

Were you able to get it to change channels remotely?

It would be interesting to know what you changed to make it work, in case someone has a similar problem.

I was not able to make it work through my switch I had to connect it directly to the 2wire rg

Sounds like a port is blocked somewhere between the switch --> 2wire --> Internet.

I hooked one up last year to my MTS service. it works great, but you need to set it up in a slightly different order than what the Slingbox instructions say.

Once you add the Slingbox to your router, you have to manually go to the router, and add a port forward (Slingbox shows up as a pre-defined option), then you can follow the installation instructions.
