When I start recorder it does not light the lights on the front of the slingbox and just errors (ASF error). I tried to attach the log but can't.
Ant help or an actual phone number would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the log
You need to switch debug on before you try and connect.
Follow these instructions:
Here you go
Your logs show there is no slingbox accessible at 188.8.131.52:5001. This IP address is what is being returned from Sling for the id you entered.
Have you opened your firewall to allow the connection through?
Is your SlingBox is on the same network as JSR? If so then using the local IP address of the SlingBox will be easier than using the Id. Try that.
Getting closer. please see log
sorry, was logged into slingbox. recorder made connection and recorded but the recording is dark and has squares in it and plays at ff speed
Use the default recording settings - untick Enable on the Slingbox's Settings > Recording Settings tab
Else you will need to play around with them until you find something that works.
