Help with Slinglink
Posted 13 July 2010 - 09:56 PM
He was showing me screen on the TV and at the time, it set both receivers were online. Now, I'm getting my receivers are offline.
I'm trying to figure this out and maybe I'm doing something wrong here...
So from the menu screen if I go to dishcom setup, it shows both receivers are online.
But if I go to web activation, it says activation failed.
Also, if I go to broadband set up, it says receivers are off line.

Also, note that when using these devices, both the SlingLink/DishComm modem and the receivers must be plugged straight into the wall, and NOT into a power strip or surge protector, as those will filter out the data signals out of the line.

The tech installed a slinglink.
It was plugged onto a surge protector but that was my doing from moving things around. I just connected it to a wall and saw both lights light up.
I'll test it out again and see if anything changes.

Can you tell me how to add a receiver to the list?
While messing around with the remote, I accidentally removed one of my receivers off the list.

Now I have both receivers online and activated.
I can access them online and control them via the Dish site.
I also have the Dish app on my 3GS iPhone.
I can access my DVRs thru the iPhone/Dish app but I can't seem to watch anything on the phone.
Reading the FAQ in the Dish site, both my receivers (722 & 722K) are compatible.
It says I must first use the remote access online which I've done... I think.
So what I am doing wrong that I can't play any recordings on my phone?
On a side note...
Still learning on this but with slinglink, I should be able to watch to recordings off my DVR on my phone, right?
Should I be able to watch live TV as well?
