          I've seen 'no network' come up on a slingcatcher screen, but have never seen it say 'no signal'. Can you clarify that 'no signal' is what's coming up and where exactly its showing up on the screen? If it is saying no signal, that's a new one to me.

              "No signal" usually means you can connect to the Slingbox but the it isn't supplying video.  In most cases that means the set-top box that's connected to the Slingbox isn't providing any video.  And that's usually due to HDCP on the set-top box cutting out analog video when HDMI connection is present.

                  Now that makes sense eferz in which the way you put it. I was thinking he was receiving this 'no signal' from the initial slingcatcher startup and not after it had connected to the slingbox. So, do you think he's changed something in his configuration, because if it was working before, what's changed to cause him to receive this message?
