    Flickering when using both hdmi and component

    victor.vanhalen

      Dear  Sling Community,

       

      For some reason when I connect both the HDMI and Component cables (as suggested by the user guide) from my Directv Genie receiver to my Sling box, I experience a flickering effect every two seconds or so, no matter what client I use (tablet, web browser, or WD Live box). As soon as I unplug the HDMI cable, the flickering stops, but that is less than ideal.

       

      I have the latest Slingbox (500, I believe) and it is connected via a cat 6 cable to my  gigabit router/switch. I also have pretty decent internet connectivity (I stream HD movies without issue in and out), so I don't think speed is the issue. Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this without sacrificing my HDMI connection?

       

      Thanks in advance!
