    Connecting Slingbox 500 without a cable set top box

    DaveInPA

      I'm currently helping my brother-in-law set up his new Slingbox 500.

       

      He currently has a Samsung LED TV and the cable TV is plugged in directly to the TV from the wall.  There is no set top box in the configuration, so I can't connect the Slingbox between a set top box and the TV like the directions state.

       

      I thought maybe I could plug the cable from the wall directly into the Slingbox...but it doesn't have an appropriate port for that.

       

      What do I need to do to get this to work?

       

      Thanks in advance!
