    Slingbox 500, HDMI, and 1080p streaming on cable/satellite boxes

    ScottBrown717

      I was thinking of purchasing another Slingbox 500 in the future, and I took note that you really can't use an HDMI cord alone for streaming. But there are options by most cable and satellite companies to use 1080p resolution on boxes, even though an HDMI input is required.

       

      However, if I conect both an HDMI, and composite cables to the Slingbox 500, then would I still be able to utilize the 1080p output on a cable or satellite box and still watch TV through the 500?

       

      I'm not sure if this was discussed before, but I would like to know before I buy one.

       

      Thanks!
