    Newbie questions

      Greetings

       

      I will probably be purchasing the Slingbox 500 and was wondering if someone could answer two questions. I will be using it with a Comcast HD cable box.

       

      1. With the slingbox remote will I be able to remotely power on the Cable box or will it need to be powered on at all times?

       

      2. I have read some issues regarding Direct TV and the iPad app since a recent update. Did Direct TV turn on their copy-protection causing these issues? Will I have the same problems using the iPad app on cable?

       

      Thanks in advance
