The reason that you are having this issue is because you are actually streaming in standard definition via the composite cables (yellow, red, and white). Standard definition stream in 4:3 mode. Below are a couple of articles that may help you:
- Slingbox.com - Why doesn't the video fill the whole screen?
- Slingbox.com - The aspect ratio of the video is wrong
Hope this helps!!
Yes, Rhoda is absolutely correct. By changing out the composite for the component cables, you will be able to stream in high definition. One key thing to remember... If you do indeed change out the cables, you will still need to connect red/white audio cables to get sound. The red/blue/green component cables only carry a video signal. Just wanted to chime in with that heads up, as it is something that is often overlooked.
I think Gang Hu company is cheater. Because the company don't give phone or street address and don't reply e-mails. Please CAREFUL!!
Anyone know equivalent equipment for convert HDMI-HPDC signals to component?
I want to share my problems and troubleshooting steps are below.
I have purchase slingbox 500, Slingplayer for ipad, AppleTV and Chromecast. My slingbox connected to the network via ethernet cable ( not wireless ) I have tested AppleTV and Chromecast devices with the applications such as Plex, Youtube etc.. All applications streaming videos from Galaxy Note3 and Ipad with 16:9 format to the Samsung and LG TV's. So i don't have any issue streaming movies and videos from this devices to the TV's
But when i try streaming from Slingplayer for Ipad or Slingplayer for android to the AppleTV or Chromecast, i can't get 16:9 aspect ratio. If anyone don't know resolution i can say Slingplayer don't support 16:9 streaming like Plex, youtube applications etc..
P.S : Slingbox connected to the Satalite Receiver via both HDMI and Composite cables.
Have a nice day to everyone..
