I have had a Slingbox Tuner for awhile now and I think its time to upgrade. Im debating between the Slingbox Pro HD and Solo. I have one question about the bult-in tuner that the Pro-HD has, If I have AT&T U-Verse will the built-in tuner be of any help? Would I be able to change channels if I connect the coax directly to the sling box? or do I have to use the AV inputs and use the IR blaster to be able to change the channels?
No it won't. It would work with Cable where the cable box has 2 tuners like I had for Brighthouse or comcast, U-verse doesn't have one.
A tuner is good when all the channels are available open as output from you cablebox. For ATT this is not the case, out coaxial only provide the tuned channel and not all channels. I have Pro HD and this is a tested update.
