Adding a Slingbox using its Slingbox ID

The Slingbox ID is a code that uniquely identifies each Slingbox.

To add a Slingbox to your directory using its Slingbox ID:

  1. Make sure you've logged into your Sling Account.
    If you see your Sling Account user name (in blue type) in the upper right corner of the viewing window, then you're logged in. If you see Log In in blue type, then you're not logged in. Click Log In to open the login window.
  2. Select Slingbox Directory from the Connect menu.
    The Slingbox Directory opens.
  3. Click Add.
    The New Slingbox Entry Properties dialog box opens.
  4. Enter the Name of this Slingbox (whatever you like). Then, in the Slingbox ID field, enter the Slingbox ID of the new Slingbox.
  5. Click OK to add this Slingbox to your directory. A confirmation dialog box appears.
