    I noticed that Dish has a new Sling adapter fore Fire Stick. Any idea what it is used for? I have my vip211k receiver that I guess doesn't do internet, but that is one reason I have the Fire Stick with Dish Anywhere. Would the Sling adapter work with the Dish Anywhere app? Thanks.

    An "adapter"? Or an "app". Can you post a link to it?

    There is an app for Sling for FireTV / Stick. This is different than DIsh Anywhere that would be used with your Hopper with Sling / Hopper3.

    They have had it for years, gives you complete control of your slingbox 500 and 350.

    Thanks, so it doesn't have anything to do with the Dish Anywhere app. But the Sling app apparently must work with the Firestick.

    Love my Sling Box.

    Shows the dish remote right on the screen, all the remote functions are there.

    Better than DA.

    I should have qualified that. It's there on the Android app on my phone on the "More" menu. I don't know about the iPhone version...
