    ? Error on TV "Not compatible with this signal"

    gsolly

      Hi, I am trying to connect a Slingbox 500, and am getting a "NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THIS SIGNAL" message on my TV. The TV is not HD, and does not have an HDMI port. Can someone help me fix this problem?

       

      Thanks,
      Gary

          Hi, gsolly!

           

               Not an HDTV, huh? What does your cabling configuration look like (how the set-top box is connected to the TV and the Slingbox, how the Slingbox is connected to the TV, et cetera)?

              I have the exact same problem.


              It is a Sharp tv with 1080i.  No HDMI input.  Slingbox 500 worked great with it when I had a Comcast DVR input.  Now with FiOS ARRIS ipc 1100, I get this Blue screen:  "Not Compatible with this signal."

               

              Using the component cables from Slingbox.

               

              Here is something weird.  See the picture perfectly during setup (though in a small window.)

               

              Worked fine on the internet, just not on the tv screen.


              Connecting box directly to the tv - picture is fine.

               

              Any ideas?

               

              Thanks,
