I know these posts are a year, old but I am hoping soomnee will respond as I desperately need help. I have Verizon Fios and I installed a Slingbox. I had no problem getting it installed, but the onscreen remote does not work. The only thing I am able to do is control the volume and mute controls. I cannot change the channels. The cable box is Motorola QIP6200 and I chose that model # and the remote looks just like the one I have. I tried all of the model numbers listed for the Motorola cable box and all of the codes but nothing worked. I have been on the internet for hours trying to get help and can't find any.Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.


Also a little more clotificarian on my previous post, I want to stream the HD slingbox content from my Verizon FIOS HD content (I have Series 3 HD tivo receiving the FIOS signals) to the MacMini (using either the slingbox web interface or using the slingsoftware on the MacMini), so the HD content would all be on the local network (I have everything running through ethernet at home).HD streaming out of the house isn't that important, as I'd be watching on my iPhone or a computer on the road. I think I have the upstream bandwith as my fios is 25 down and 5 up. I'm actually excited to try streaming the HD Tivo box content because I have Netflix on my TIVO. So I'd be receiving the downstream from Netflix, running it through the Slingbox and then streaming it out to my iPhone on the road. I'm planning on getting an iPad and seeing how that solution works as well. Kind of a work around until Netflix decides to deliver a streaming app on the iPhone/iPod/iPad platform.
