I was able to hook it up to a Slingbox Solo using the composite output and it works fine on the channel which I use the actual remote set to. However I have not been able to find a sling remote that works to change the channels. I called the help line, but they did know know how to do it either. They did tell me the Mag unit uses a model NC003UD remote, but I was not able to find that on the slingbox site either. I have tried all the generic codes.

I am not sure that it uses the IR Blaster protocol that the Singbox uses. Of course that would be required as that is how the Slingbox changes channels.

Any ideas to help with this problem would be appreciated.

A couple of things:

 

1. Look for codes for the older Mag 2160, 2160A, 513 remote, NB820UD... it'll use the same code.

 

2. Try code 1056, which works in a Philips Universal remote on Mag units.


PHILIPS HD DVRs | MAG/PHILIPS SD DVDRs* | DVDR/DVR COMPARISONS | POST-DVDR OPTIONS

Thanks....I tried looking but NONE of those code were listed. But I was sucessful by using the JP1 site and downloading the binary files and uploading them to Slingbox. It has limited functionality but enough to get what I needed.

If anyone can use this I think you will be happy to have something to change channels, and to set up timer to record and play etc.
