I have an SD tv with no HDMI, how do I setup thru WiFi on the TV?
You do actually need an HDTV to use the OnScreen Setup with the Slingbox 500 and this is the only way to set up WiFi. I'm sorry about any inconvenience.

Ok, so I need a new TV. The cable box isn't HDTV. Do I have to upgrade my cable service as well, or will a new TV be sufficient?
I can get an HDTV, but does the cable box have to be HDTV as well? Right now it isn’t.
You wouldn't necessarily need an HD cable box as long as your cable box has composite outputs (Red, White, Yellow). However, you would get better picture quality with an HD box.
I had a similar problem. I used a netgear powerline adapter so that I had a 'wired' connection. Then I was able to set up the box using the browser on my laptop that was connected to the same network.
