I regularly use a MAC or PC to remotely view my Slingbox AV and that works great, so no problem there.
I just bought a Verizon iPhone 4 and I would like to buy the SlingPlayer Mobile app to similarly view my Slingbox remotely via my new iPhone 4. If I can do so using my Slingbox AV then that would be great, but if I can only do it with another Slingbox model then so be it.
HOWEVER, in addition to viewing TV on my iPhone 4 screen, I would like to plug my iPhone 4 into whatever TV I happened to be near and watch (and listen to) that TV instead of my tiny iPhone 4 screen.
I have read conflicting reports of whether this is possible, and even those that say that it is doable offer other conflicting reports as to whether such a setup will work with my older Slingbox AV. (For example, I have read posts that state I may need a Slingbox SOLO or PRO-HD, although if the remote stream works OK on my MAC and PC I don't see technically why a new Slingbox would be required, but I digress).
I have read conflicting reports that state - assuming I actually CAN send my iPhone 4 output to a nearby TV - that I would need to buy Apple's component AV cable to plug my iPhone 4 into whatever TV I happened to be near. Others have said that only Apple's composite AV cable will do the job. I don't care which will do the job. If only one of these cables will do the job then I would make sure I get that type of cable and make sure that I am near a TV that supports that type of cable. I am just looking to learn what combination of components and cables actually works as of this writing.
- ON THE SLINGBOX SIDE: Specifically what Slingbox model(s) will do the trick? (if my Slingbox AV won't support this then which model of the Slingbox box will work?)
- ON THE VERIZON iPHONE4 SIDE: Specifically what cable(s) will connect my Verizon iPhone4 to a nearby TV for this purpose? (if both types of cables can do the job then I will buy both types - in case I am near a TV that supports only one type or the other.)
- ALSO ON THE VERIZON iPHONE4 SIDE: Specifically what Slingbox Mobile iPhone app version works with all these parts? (I assume there is only one current Slingbox iPhone app for my Verizon iPhone 4, but if there is more than one app version then which app version/release do I need?)
- ON BOTH SIDES: Are there any other relevant questions about this setup that I'm not asking?
If all this is doable then what is the longest cable - be it the component AV cable or the composite AV cable - I can get that will still work well? (in other words if I plug my iPhone into whatever TV I happened to be near it would be nice if I didn't have to sit only a few feet in front of the TV)
DOUBLE BONUS QUESTION:
In addition to a TV, would I be able to similarly plug my Verizon iPhone 4 into a projector? (I happen to own an LG HS200 LED Projector if anyone knows what might work with that model)
