The list parameters could really be integers...

p_vs and p_vsCommand are never initialized (bug), and could probably be 
replaced with NULL.

ReceiveSlingBoxMessage() seems to receive data in a pointers array. That does 
not make much sense.

ReceiveSlingBoxMessage() calls recv(), which makes me wonder how event 
handling is done? busy loop??

The key event callback is not thread-safe. It might be possible to keep it 
lock-less (not sure), but then writing to the socket must be atomic...

The code is endian-specific...

Ok, I will stop here.
