    How to view without the TV being on?

    tambesm

      Do I have to leave the TV on to be able to view via the internet. My TV has the HDMI cable and all the other inputs are connected from the cable box to my Slingbox. But if I turn the TV off, I have no picture viewing via Slingbox (but I can hear the audio). Please help.

          You don't have to leave the TV on, for sure.   But I have heard others say that there is a problem with using HDMI cables when slinging, and the workaround appears to be to use the RED-BLUE-GREEN component cables for the video and the RED-WHITE cables for audio. for the connections between your cable box and your SB, and for the connections between the SB and the TV.
