    Slingbox 500 randomly powers on

      Hi,

       

      While I'm watching TV on my cable box that is hooked up to my slingbox 500, numerous times throughout the day the slingbox powers on, interrupting what I am currently watching. All of a sudden the Slingbox screen comes onto the TV and it says Slingbox is powering up, this may take a few minutes. This occurs completely randomly throughout the day, sometimes once an hour, sometimes every 10-20 minutes and sometimes it won't happen at all for several hours. Is this normal? I previously had my slingbox hooked up to a tv I did not use very often so I never really noticed whether or not this ever happened. Is there something I can do to prevent this from happening as it is quite frustrating to constantly have my program interrupted for several minutes at a time?

       

      Thanks,


      Jon
