    PRO-HD Clear QAM tuner issue

    jccopp1

      I have 2 pro-hd slingboxes both hooked up to the same coaxial cable source in a chain configuration.

       

      cable->slingbox 1(in)->slingbox 1(out)->slingbox 2(in)

       

      Both slingboxes stream analog channels fine, but I am having a problem with slingbox 1 in that it will NOT allow me to view clear QAM digital channels.  Slingbox 2 is able to stream the clear QAM channels without any problem.

       

      Both boxes have fw version 2.1.370 and are both setup for cable input, 

       

      The only differences I notice are:

       

      1.  Slingbox 1 has hardware version 1.5.0 where slingbox 2 has version 1.0.0.

      2.  When I run the channel scan utility, slingbox 1 seems to think ALL channels are unencrypted, whereas slingbox 2(thie one that works) only finds a couple of unencrypted channels and a bunch of encrypted ones.

       

      So either Slingbox 1 is broken, or the hardware has changed to make this not work(1.5.0), or I missed something.  Can someone provide some insight?
