    Slingbox 500 & Apple TV HDCP


      I am planning to connect the 500 to an Apple TV 3rd gen. Will it have any HDCP issues using the HDMI cable? I'd like to connect both my uverse box thru component and the apple tv at the same time and switch sources. Is this possible?  Thanks.

          Hello DarklyX,


          Thank you for using answers.slingbox.com. Unfortunately, there is not a way of knowing until you try it. You may be able to contact your cable provider and they should be able to tell you if the Cable box is protected by HDCP. Other than that you would have to try it to find out.


          Hope this helps!

              Apple TV is HDCP complient according to DVDO as I wanted to do the same thing thru a DVDO HD.


              So if connect your Apple TV to your Slingbox 500 it will not handshake. Please note I have NOT tried this with your equipment, but I suspect HDCP will get in the way.
