Thanks for posting! In order to use your surround system with the Slingbox, I would recommend having your Slingbox directly connected to your cable box then have your surround sound connected to the output of your Slingbox.
If you have any other questions, feel free to respond or call in at 1-877-467-5464. We are open seven days a week, 10:00am to 10:00pm EST.
