So I have my SlingBox connected to my cable box via component cables. I have the TV connected to the same box via HDMI cable. Can these two types of connection not exist? From messing around, I have found that I cannot have my HDMI and Component either on or plugged in at the same time. Is this correct? How do people who use these two connections have their setups?
If this is the case, for what reason do I need the IR connector for the remote?
Also, I noticed when I turn my TV off(which usually means I turn my cable box off), it disables my video feed. Will I need to start leaving my cable box on all of the time or will I be able to turn it on via Slingbox on my laptop or iPad.
