      Can't Access SlingBox Over The Net

      I have a 'Sling Box'** "Watch Tv Anywhere" ' jobbies which used to work fine on NTL BB.

      But now that i'm on Sky BB (8mb) it won't work over the net.
      It works fine on the home LAN.

      Somebody suggested on DS to open port 5001, which is already open

      Any ideas?


      ** A SlingBox is device that connects from an AV device (sky stb in this case) and then to the router and onto your LAN/NET.
      You can then access your TV remotley over the net

      Do you know the IP address of your Slingbox? If you do, see if you can ping it from your router and advise.

      Apparently needs a static IP address which you do not have with SKY.
      Service recovery 02392 899292

      You got 3 right!
      D'oh! Not good, dude.
