Hi there, i am wondering how i can combine 2 remote controls into 1 for my slingbox. 1 of the remote controls is for a foxtel remote and i require most of the buttons and the other remote is for an AV switcher where i only require 1 button.

How do i go about doing this?

The foxtel remote is here: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=3103

And the ellies AV switcher is here: http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/dload.php?action=file&file_id=1552

The only button from the AV switcher i need is input 1 which is linked to the guide button i believe.

Thanks 4 any help.

Normally, we use the device combiner to mix different upgrades like this, but unfortunately, the D/C makes upgrades too big for them to be used in the Slingbox, so your SOL for now.

I say "for now" because I hear rumblings that Sling is planning to upgrade their software at some point so that the Slingbox can control more than one device, but I don't know how far off that is.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Well, i guess i lay i waiting until sling fixes this up. It is a shame that you can only use it to control 1 device at the moment. They market the thing to be able to connect up to your whole system... oh well.
