Slingplayer for Fire TV is an app that lets you connect to your Slingbox via any TV that has an Amazon Fire TV device connected to it.
It's easy! Here's how:
Press the Menu button on the Amazon Fire TV remote control to reveal the onscreen controls. Use the Amazon Fire TV remote’s 4-way navigation control to manipulate the onscreen controls.
The supported Slingbox models are the Slingbox 500, Slingbox M1/M2, and the Slingbox 350.
Both the Amazon Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick are supported.
You can use the Up and Down buttons on the Amazon Fire TV remote control to change channels up and down.
It's even easier than that! Just use the onscreen guide that comes with your set-top box … just like you would if you were sitting in front of your TV.
Absolutely. You can watch or do anything that you could do if you were sitting in front of your TV using your actual remote control.
No, with Slingplayer for Fire TV you use the physical remote to initiate streaming from your Slingbox 500, Slingbox M1/M2, or Slingbox 350.
For the best video quality, make sure that your Amazon Fire TV player has a good Wi-Fi signal available. (For the best possible signal, if possible, use an ethernet cable to connect your network to the Amazon Fire TV’s ethernet port.) Anytime the Wi-Fi signal isn't so good, performance may suffer.
Also, you can bring up the app menu and manually switch the picture quality higher or lower.
