How to watch your Slingbox on a TV
- Apple TV and iOS 7 device running SlingPlayer: With an AirPlay-supported device like the second or third-generation Apple TV and an iPhone 4S, iPod touch (fifth generation), iPad mini, iPad 2, or later device running the current version of iOS (iOS 7.x) and SlingPlayer, you can use AirPlay to project SlingPlayer to your HD TV. IMPORTANT: Your iOS device must be on the same Wi-Fi network as your Apple TV. To set it up:
- Launch SlingPlayer and connect to your Slingbox.
- Tap the screen to display the SlingPlayer controls.
- Tap the AirPlay icon and select your Apple TV:
- The video stream now displays on your TV, while the controls remain on your iOS device! If you want to switch the video back to your device, just tap the AirPlay icon and reselect your device:
- Double-tap the home button on your device to bring up the multitasking bar.
- Swipe to the right.
- Tap the AirPlay button, and choose your Apple TV.
- Tap to enable the mirroring switch.
- Launch SlingPlayer.
Note: When you connect to a Slingbox 350 or 500, SlingPlayer supports AirPlay in either standard or mirroring mode. If you connect through an older Slingbox model such as the Slingbox SOLO or PRO-HD, SlingPlayer supports AirPlay mirroring. Normal Airplay streaming may work in this configuration, but it is not supported.
