Had a few questions for you:
- When you stated that you cannot connect, are you getting connected but do not seeing video?
- If this is the case, does the Genie box that you have have HDMI and Composite (Yellow, Red, White) connections?
- If there is HDMI cables involved, are you running the HDMI cable to the TV and Composite to Slingbox or are you just running Composite from Genie to Slingbox the Slingbox to TV?
If you are using the HDMI cable, the satellite provider can reserve the right to block viewing to a Slingbox by embedding a code to block you from watch copy written material being viewed.
Check out this article for more details:
- When I connect my set-top box to my TV with HDMI connections, I can't stream video at all using any version of SlingPlayer. Why?
The fix in this article does say to use Component from the cable box to you Slingbox and from your Slingbox to the TV, but if you only have the Composite cables then you will just have to run another set of Composite from the Slingbox to the TV and totally eliminating the HDMI all together.
Hope this helps!!!
