How to setup remote viewing on Android/iOS/Windows/Mac for your TVPad, Moonbox, Ubox, HTV

I have a few forum members asking me how to watch their TVPad remotely or on another screen. So here it is.

 

 

Depending on your budget there will be 1-2 extra component you will need for remote viewing.

  1. Video streamer (Video reboradcaster)
  2. HDMI to component converter **Not required if your video streamer have a HDMI input/output

Poorman setup

For the poorman’s setup, you will need a streamer with at least a component input/output.  The media box (TVpad,HTV,Moonbox,Ubox) HDMI signal will go into the HDMI-Component converter. The component output will then be connected to the video streamer (Slingbox,Vulkano) componnet input. The output of the video streamer will then be connected to the component of the TV.

Richman setup

If you have extra money and you want to spend on this setup, you will need to buy a streamer with a HDMI input/output. The only box I know that have such option is the Slingbox 500. For this setup the media box HDMI signal will go directly to the video streamer, then the HDMI output for the video streamer will go to the TV HDMI.

Local Viewing

Once everything is connected (including the network connection) you should be able to connect and watch live with the app for the video streamer you are using. No router configuration is necessary

Remote Viewing

If you want to watch remotely (outside of your network) then you will need to open the port for your router to forward to your video streamer.

Slingbox port: 5001

Vulkano: 56123

Once the port has been forwarded properly to your video streamer, you should be able to connect to your home network’s external IP and it’s associated port for your streamer

To find your external IP, you can go on http://www.ipchicken.com/

      The IR blaster file should work with tvpad 4. Since the tvpad 1 remote work with tvpad 4 as well.

  • Arcel Glenn Mayrena

    Is it possible to watch using a MacBook directly without using any additional hardware? What I want is to use the UBOX4 and connect it directly to the Mac without turning on the TV. Thanks!
