          Sling do not use the RGB system so it's difficult to comment without knowing what wires you are using.   They use the Red/White RCA connectors for analog sound and then 3 different ways of providing the video:  S-Video, Composite (using the Yellow connector) and then Component (using the Orange/Blue/Green connectors).

           

          Can you be more specific about your wiring connections ?  SCART-SCART ?  SCART to Composite (Red/Yellow/White) ?   And what connections are available on your receiver and VCR.

              I need to connect 2 box

              1:satellite receiver with

              Y-Pb-Py

              white-red-yellow

              s/pdif

               

              2:tv box with

              Y-Pb-Py

              white-red-yellow

              scart

              s/pdif

              i prefer the satellite box HD THE TV tv box doesnt matter now for me works only white-red-yellow,and the tv box not connected,

                  I would connect the output of the satellite receiver to the input of the Slingbox using the component (Y-Pb-Py - Orange/blue/Green) for the video and the Red and White for the Audio (I have no experience of the digital audio using S/PDIF but that might be worth trying instead of the analog Red/White cables.   Then use the same configuration to connect the output of the Slingbox to the TV.  That way both the Slingbox and the TV will get an HD signal.

                      yes but what can i do with the second box thats has only red-white yellow

                      it looks that works only one box at a time,icant conecte both in slingbox pro.

                      both conected to tv but both have superete control the tv only is for viewing them,

                      1.satellite receiver

                      2.tv box from locale provider

                      My problem is that canot connected both in slingbox

                      and i think doesnt work the component

                      you said orange-blue green there is not such input in slingbox

                          yes but what can i do with the second box thats has only red-white yellow

                          Sorry, I thought 'TV Box" meant TV, I assume you actually mean Set-Top-Box/Receiver ?

                          it looks that works only one box at a time,icant conecte both in slingbox pro.

                          OK, in your original post you said you had a Slingbox Pro-HD, now you are saying you have a SlingBox Pro ?  Which is it ?

                          and i think doesnt work the component

                          you said orange-blue green there is not such input in slingbox

                          OK, I guess you only have a Pro then.  I haven't seen one of these but it looks as though it will take 2 inputs ?  In that case one of the boxes can use the Red/white/yellow.   For the other one use the red/white for the audio

                              it is slingbox pro-hd

                              in the photo rigth is satelite receiver red-green-blue  and red and white

                              and to the left white-red-yellow from set top box

                              when i try to setup my sling box it looks only recognise composite connection (and then i watch either setup box or sattelite depence what i connect to the left side of my slingbox that supose if i undersend well is analog connection,i try red blue green also from setup box to slingbox not working.because i was thinking from my stalite mabe be broken the conectors,

                              is there any way to connect both?

                                  Wow, this is getting complicated.    If you have a Pro-HD then contrary to what you said earlier you DO have a component input on the Slingbox.   I know I said Orange/Blue/Green, but you talk about Red/Blue/Green.  These are the same, I just tend to call it Orange to make it different to the Red of the Sound Channel.

                                   

                                  So let's start again     Are you REALLY saying that if you connect the Orange(Red)/Blue/Green component wires from the Satellite to the Slingbox that you get no video ?   (your use of the word 'recognise' is a bit misleading, please be more specific).

                                   

                                  Are you using the HDMI ouput of the Satellite reciever or the Settop box?

                                      the same from setup box blue red green out to in os slingerbox the same

                                          PLEASE don't use the words 'doesn't work', that could mean dozens of things.  Be VERY specific in your description.   So I ask again, do you see the video when you select component on the Slingbox.    And you haven't answered the question about HDMI ?

                                              the HDMI from satellite is out of order i use the scart througth my vcr to wach in tv

                                              in the setup box i use the HDMI to connect to tv

                                              And i cant see any video when i select component in sling box

                                                  No more ideas then.   If the HDMI is not used on the satellite then the component should be working (I assume you have tested it is working by plugging directly into the TV ?   If the HDMI is broken then maybe the component is as well ?)

                                                   

                                                  How about disconnecting the HDMI on the settop box and then using the component to go to the Slingbox and then from there to the TV ?

                                                   

                                                  Then the SCART from the satellite to the VCR then composite from the VCR to the Slingbox ?
