    DishNetwork/Sling Beta

    I noticed that they are in beta for allowing you to remotely control recordings etc.

    Has anyone tried this yet? I signed up but have to wait until I get home to enter my R00 code from my DVR.

    thanks for posting this. I was able to look up my R00 code online from dishnetwork.com

    edit: it only shows the middle 8 ... not all 10. Nevermind.

    I haven't heard this yet. What are the details?

    I've had a sling box hooked up for over a year to my DTV receiver but they are now offering something different?

    You were right though. Bummer is that you have to be in front of the thing after you put that number in so you can get the activation code. Dangit!

    Oh are you talking about m.directv.com that allows to to record remotely? I thought you were talking about something that would allow you to watch remotely like a real slingbox does.

    I used the remote booking for Directv a lot but this Dish app looks a lot nicer.
