    Not able to view my HD channels

    CanucksGirl

      Hello,

       

      I've set up my Slingbox Pro HD using an extra cable box we had lying around. We subscribe to a lot of HD channels (Shaw Digital in Vancouver, BC) but the old box is a non-HD box. My friend led me to believe that since we had an HD subscription, I would be able to view my HD channels using the Slingbox (even though the cable box is SD). When I go to one of my HD channels, though, I get a screen asking me to "call Shaw to subscribe to this channel".

       

      Does this mean I have to hook up the slingbox to an HD box?

       

      If I can't use this box, can I hook it up directly to the cable and not use a box at all?

       

       

      Thanks for your help!
