I have probably the 1st Slingbox that was made. It is not hooked up to a TV. I have no TV to hookup to. I currently use internet to acces sling and want to continue this way. And I have my son in Switzerland accessing TV from the Slingbox thru the internet.
Aside from the normal Router, power and phone conections, the only thing I have connected are the White, red and yellow cables wires between the Slingbox and the cable box.
SLBETALOU1, I assume your setup is working...? Haven't you answered your own question, or are you just making a statement for others to realize that the TV is not necessary.
My TV has never been connected directly to the SB. All you need it the STB/cable box to source the slingbox video feed.
