You tape two sensors onto your cable box (they're discreet) and connect them to the slingbox. Then when you set up the software you tell it what kind of Cable Box you have and it configures the 'remote control.' On your computer screen you'll see a remote control and you use that to control your cablebox. Absolutely anything you can do from sitting in front of your cable box you can do with the Sling Box.
