Broadband Internet Connectivity Required – To enable full functionality of the advanced features of the model

ViP922 receiver, a high-speed broadband Internet connection via direct Ethernet or SlingLink is required.

o SlingLink is the New Name for HomePlug Turbo – Please note that we recently changed the name of the

HomePlug Turbo connectivity device to “SlingLink.” SlingLink uses the power lines in the customer’s home to

connect equipment, such as satellite receivers, to the broadband home network, and eliminates the need to run

new Ethernet cables.

o When selecting any receiver model in R*Connect, you will now be prompted to ask the customer if they currently

subscribe to a broadband Internet service. Please keep in mind that a broadband Internet connection is especially

important for the installation of a model ViP922 receiver.

To ensure the best customer experience and minimize impacts to the customer’s current network and setup, it

is recommended that the customer have an existing router already installed to a broadband Internet


o Connectivity Confirmation E-mail – When a model ViP922 receiver is selected on customer’s account, the customer will be sent an e-mail (shown on right) prior to their installation advising them that in order to enable the full functionality of their model ViP922 receiver, it will need to be connected to broadband Internet through their home router. The e-mail will also provide a link to a Connectivity Test Tool, which the customer should use to confirm that they have the proper home network.


o Installation of Broadband Connectivity Equipment – Installation of the model ViP922 receiver includes the

installation of broadband connectivity equipment using a direct Ethernet connection or a SlingLink for no

additional charge.

Solo Mode by Default – The model ViP922 receiver is a single-TV solution, and therefore will remain in single user

mode by default. The receiver will only go into Duo mode when remote viewing is in session. Once the remote

viewing session has ended, the receiver will return to Solo mode. Please note that the MODE button on the front of

the receiver will not be enabled and installation of the TV2 physical outputs of the receiver is not supported.
