    Do I need a cable box?

    sedlak12

      I'm looking to purchase a Slingbox and want to make sure it works properly.  Do I need to hook the Slingbox up to a cable box?  Can I just hook the coax cable into the slingbox and have it work with just that?  I appreciate the help.

          Just think of a Slingbox as a TV set that happens to send it's output to the Internet rather than to a screen.  So rephrase your question as :

          Do I need to hook my new TV up to a cable box?  Can I just hook the coax cable into the TV and have it work with just that?

          and I guess you can answer your own question.
