Have just been looking into hdfury3 and just wanted to check the following
Hdfury3 has two hdmi inputs and is autoswitchable!
Does this mean that I can connect both the sky + hd box and the apple tv (both using hdmi cables) to the hdfury3 then output from the hdfury3 via component cables to the slingbox, controlling which is used by turning either one off via the ir blasters aimed at the ir receivers on both the apple tv and sky boxes.
This would seem to solve all my issues albeit using the more expensive (and becoming less available it seems) hdfury3
Reading other posts if the above is the case why are people splitting the hdmi signal from the sky box if the slingbox acts as a passthrough ???
Hi I went for the spliter from Neet splitter so that I could go hdmi all the way to my TV rather than component out from the slingbox to the TV.
Works a treat and what you've proposed should work fine as the slingbox has around 4-5 ir blasters. I've just got the new apple tv too but haven't got round to setting it up with slingbox. would be good to confirm it all works for you if you don't mind.
I have an Apple TV as well... be careful because I couldn't see a way to switch OFF the Apple TV, which means the HDFury will be stuck on that input, and you won't be able to switch back to your other source
I'm not sure if Apple have finally added a sleep option to the menus on the Apple TV....
Hope it helps,
