    HDMI

    Llamaman66

      My slingbox solo instructions show the satellite box connected to a tv with a scart cable with a scart adapter to plug into the Slingbox.... However my tv is connected to the (Sky) satellite box by an HDMI cable. Do I need to disconnect the HDMI and reconnect with a scart or ...? Thanks for any help/advice

          Hi Llamaman66,

           

          There are a few options for conecting, but this article I think will be helpful in your situation. It outlines issues with using HDMI connections.

           

          Hope this helps!

            Not actually sure why the Moderator pointed you to that article, as it has nothing to do with your question.  You need to leave the HDMI cable connected to the TV and simply use the SCART adapter to connect to the Solo using the composite (Yellow/Red/White).  This is assuming your Sky box has a SCART output as well as the HDMI.  Mine has and I would be a bit surprised if yours doesn't.   In fact, if you have ONLY an HDMI output from the Sky box you cannot use the Slingbox Solo at all.
