I have since found out that if I remove my HDMI cable from my cable box (to the TV) my slingbox starts working properly and the code goes away. Does anyone know what type of HDMI cable I can buy to still keep my HDTV connect to my HD Cablebox while still allowing the slingbox to work? Someone once mentioned an "iHDMI" cable but I dont know what that is nor how I can find one.
Thank you for using our forum to answer your question.
Here is a great article that will answer your question. It is called Why don’t you have an HDMI Slingbox?
Hope that helps you,

I had a similar problem today when I upgraded to an HDTV set-up cable box, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4250 HDC. I have a Slingbox Solo. My problem was that I could watch my Slingbox via my computer or on my iphone, but I couldn't change the channels. I moved the emitters to a different location on the front of the cable box and viola, I can change the channels again.
