    Slingbox Pro - HDMI to component cable?

    Toilet-Duck

      Hi,

       

      I'm looking into buying a slingbox pro however my V+ Samsung Box provided by Virgin Media only has either an option to output via Scart or HDMI directly.

       

      Would connecting my V+ Cable Box to the slingbox pro via a HDMI to component cable actually work? I've heard on some forums this isnt possible because of  encryption for the signal...

       

      Basically I was looking into HDMI cable from my cable box to Slingbox via the HD Connect cable, a cable that converts HDMI to component, would this work?

       

      I dont have a TV using the same box so the standalone cable box would be used just for the slingbox.

       

      How would one connect the slingbox pro to my cable box?

       

      Thanks!
