I am not having any success setting it up on the computer I don't think that the slingbox is connected to the modem (using wifi). I have tried all of the cables: component, composite and hdmi, I have had no on screen picture from the slingbox with any of the options for connecting it to the tv. I am starting to think that the slingbox is just broken somehow. Also, not sure if this is a problem but the LED on the front, second from the left which as I understand it should be the network light doesn't light up at all. No blinking or steady light.
