    Hdmi cable/adapter

      Can anyone tell me what this is used for please. it came with my Slingbox Pro and I assumed it was just an adapter but I cannot find any information about it anywhere either in the supporting documentation or on the Web.  I've even tried searching by the image but still no joy.

          This adapter allows you to connect an HD video source (component video and analog audio) to the Pro.  Although the Slingbox end of the cable has an HDMI connector, it's not HDMI protocol and only this adapter is compatible with the HD jack on the Slingbox.

           

          While the Pro will not encode HD, using the component cable will still give you somewhat better quality.  The adapter also has component and audio pass-through outputs that you can daisy-chain to your TV or other device.
