Toshiba D-TR1 bin & skin for Slingbox

I use Slingbox PRO-HD to watch TV from Japan.  The Toshiba D-TR1 digital terrestrial+satellite TV tuner is connected to it and provides a constant 2Mbps+ clean HDTV feed over the Pacific.  The nice thing about this tuner is that it can record video to an external USB hard drive.  This feature is particularly useful for those who watch Japanese TV from a different time zone.

Unfortunately, Sling Media doesn't support this tuner.  So I created a .bin file and skin, and uploaded them as a package to the JP1 forum.

The remote data package is available at .  (It has been there for a couple of months, but I updated it with the shortcuts today)
