I understand that you have some issues with your Slingbox PRO-HD since it kills the HDMI hub.
The main issue is that none of the available Slingbox models will work with the HDMI cable due to the High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). If you want to use your Slingbox PRO-HD, you'll need to get rid of the HDMI cable and get a Component cable (RGB) instead. The following articles will provide you with further details:
Hope this helps!
I now have two sets of these cables, firstly I connected my sky box using the one cable into the box I have that plugs into the back of the Slingbox via the HDMI socket. from the other side of the box I have the second cable which then goes to the TV, I don't get anything on my TV. so I have removed the second cable and am using the HDMI hub which now has got me my picture on the TV and a second HDMI cable with the phono plugs on the end connecting it to the Slingbox via this HDMI adaptor thing than then pugs into the HDMI socket on the back of the SLing box. I hope you can follow so far.
The problem I have now is when I go to the setup the only input that is getting a signal is the coax connection, I have 4 options to choose from
I am assuming its the component that I should have the signal on, but I get nothing. I am also beginning to question if the HDMI should even be there, its marked as HD
I have the Slingbox Pro (the red one) and there is nothing to say this box actually has HD
Help, where am I going wrong
Many thanks in advance
I found this forum post from December 2010:
"Basically the difference is the High Definition; With the Slingbox PRO-HD, you can connect a HD source (cable box, satellite, DVR or DVD) and your Slingbox will be able to stream in HD locally and remotely if you have the minimum requirements
Slingbox PRO-HD system requirements for HD and SD streaming
With the Slingbox PRO, you can connect a HD source using the HD connect cable, you will get the best quality on the PRO but not High Definition"
There is a photo of this "HD connect cable" at http://support.slingbox.com/go/hd_connect
So, it sounds to me like the streaming is standard definition, but at the highest video quality available for standard definition.
Cheers for your replys guys, I have added a picture to this post to show the cables I have. The only way I can get anything from the box is to use the coax connection and only then will it work correcty within my network, when I access it acress the net I only get sound, if I use the cables in the picture I get nothing at all. I also have a second cable the same as the one on the picture so I can take the output from my sky box HDMI socket connect it to the slingbo input and from the other side (output) connect back to my TV (I get no picture on the TV) It was suggested that I got these cables, are these the wrong ones ? and if they are the only other output from the back of the sky box is the coax cable
It is labeled HD, but it's not labeled HDMI because it isn't HDMI, which is likely why it's killing your hub, it's a foreign dignal. It's my understanding that no Sligbox has HDMI input. This is truly mystifying, but that's a separate discussion. I believe if my research is correct, that the input you're referring to is a Sling Media proprietary input, so you should ask about where to get the cable.
