Im considering buy a slingbox, but I was wondering since the gatway has 6 tuners, is there a way to connect it so that I don't interrupter anyone watching tv at the same time im using the slingbox?
i have a dedicated portal connected to a slingbox. The concept of slingbox is to show you via web or an app the output from a set top box. It basically will give you the same experience as if you were watching from a tv. There is no way to separate the tuners to be displayed independently. It takes the connection that normally would be connected to a TV, and display that to you.
Get a seperate Portal for the Slingbox
I'm guessing this would be possible if you buy your Slingbox it's own Portal. Unfortunately there is no way to "directly connect" a device to the Gateway (main hub) without a Portal. My next question, which I don't know the answer to, is if the Slingbox can remotely control (change channels, access the recordings, etc) this specific hardware.
I'm pretty sure the slingbox, comes with a virtual remote and IR blaster to control the harware.
And what about the older Motorola Cable boxes with two tuners, is it possible to display both tuners separately for the slingbox?
Mark, with your Slingbox, is it still required to 'build' the remote control profile? Or does Slingbox have it now?
slingbox has it natively built in their software. Even the remote is properly branded too. See picture below.
I remember ~2011 people having to 'build' the remote in the Slingbox, that was why I asked
Since you have a slingbox, im assuming your internet is with shaw, what plan do you have and how is the speed and quality on it?
Have bb50, and quality and speed is good.

Great! Thats we got
Kevin, what's the setup required to get the Shaw remote? I have a Motorola DCX3200M hooked to a slingbox. Having troubles with the remote.
I used the sticky-pad on the IR Tether to stick it onto my Slingbox beside where the IR blaster is.
My terminal is also dedicated to my Slingbox, so not sure if this will be applicable to your setup, if you are sharing the terminal with a TV, try the IR Blaster that came with the Slingbox, and put it infont/beside the IR receiver for your DCX3200
I'm using the Comcast DCX3400 remote, Motorola brand and then DCX3400 terminal model, seems to work the best, I tried all the DCT series, the DCX3200 remote, but for my phone and the web application, that remote seems to work the best
With the newer Slingboxes you can use a custom remote file, but you can't 'skin' them anymore to make them look like the Atlas, so stuck with either their Generic remote or a few TV provider's. Comcast's seems to work the best for me.
I cannot find this remote on the slingbox site... there is so far no remote that works with my PACE TDC770D and slingbox 500...
Please help me!
The Pace, use the remotes for the DCX3400 - there is a Comcast branded remote that works well, similar to the Atlas, but the buttons are moved slightly.
The Portal does have a branded remote too, I've seen a screenshot from another community member, it looks the same as the Portal remote on screen
