The Slingbox that you own, do you own a Slingbox 500? If so, are you using HDMI cables, either from the cable box top the Slingbox or from the Cable box to the TV?
If this is 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?
This article explains to use Component cables as the video source. If this still gives you interruptions of video, try removing the HDMI cables all together and just use component cables. If you do this, after removing the HDMI cable, make sure you power cycle your cable box (unplug from wall, count to ten, then plug back in).
Let me know if this helps!!!

The setup that you discribe is the one I was using (with included HDMI cable). Ive checked everything and rebooted all components. If it still has the same proble, then I'll try the 100% component approach and report. Hopefull the company will come up with a softwae patch that makes all this unnecessary.
