Are you experiencing no video signal or you have audio but no video? If so, have a look at this article below:
- 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?
What you have to do now is run component cables from the Slingbox to the TV and completely remove the HDMI cables. After removal of HDMI cable, sometimes you may have to power cycle the DirecTV box by unplugging from the wall, count to ten, then plug back in?
Hope this helps!!!

Hi, I am having the same issue with directv genie mini client .. the problem is the genie mini does not have component video .. just hdmi. Does anybody know if the geffin hdmi detective will handshake hdmi so that it works? I didn't have a problem with my previous direct tv receiver except for the pay channels like HBO.
The Genie Mini has a jack on the rear shaped like a S-Video port. With the proper cable, this jack will output analog signals (including component video). Take a look at one of these cables.
Once you have one of those cables, you'll have the best success with the following setup:
Genie Mini -Component-> Slingbox -Component-> TV
Otherwise if you do this:
TV <-HDMI- Genie Mini -Component-> Slingbox
HDCP channels like HBO will not work unless your TV is on (or you disconnect the HDMI cable from the TV).
This does work with the breakout cable and is HD, the problem I have is it comes up scrambled looking upon first opening it up .. go to settings, input, configure composit input then back to component and it works fine for me. My issue might be because HDMI is feeding my tv and component cable feeds the sling. HBO and Showtime work too !
