    Cable box setup

    theVonZipper

      Before I buy, I'm trying to determine how I will hook up a SlingBox. My cable box (Scientific Atlanta 8240HD) has component outs and HDMI. I understand that the compent outs will provide the most content because it avoids copy protection. So if I connect my cable box's component outs to the SlingBox, do I also have to take component outs out of the SlingBox to pass on to my TV? Currently, I am connected by HDMI from my cablebox to the TV. But, when I tried connecting both component & HDMI cales to the TV, only the HDMI worked. So ... I'm assumimg that my cablebox will only output one source at a time (Component or HDMI).

      Thank in advance for your reply.
