I have successfully used my Slingbox with a the coax cable connection for 4 years and my cable box does not have a RGB nor HDMI connection and my Slingbox does not support HDMI.
Are you sure that if I upgrade my cable box to one with an RGB connection, I will have access to all my channels on both my PC and iPad?
OK. be careful here. if you have been able to watch cable channels through the coax for years and it has suddenly stopped I would suspect the cable box. Have you taken the coax direct to a TV to make sure the channels are actually being transmitted ?
If so, have you re-run a scan to find the channels ?
And there is no such thing as RGB on the Slingbox, you have either composite or component video.
Prior to today, I had access to every station through my PC on my cable box using my Slingbox Pro-HD.
But then I added the Slingbox App to my wife's new iPad and presto change-O, I lost the ability to see any cable only stations on either the PC or the iPad.
Has anyone else encountered this and does anyone have a solution?
