That is not true... When I went to X1 last year, they got a component one for me... They are not making them anymore however so those of us with older Sling devices have to be careful, My big 2004 DLP TV just blew it's latest bulb last night and I decided when this bulb went, I would go out and get a new TV for my home with HDMI and all the other modern features.
I can hook up the new TV like I have had the old TV using component cables like I have now but really want to go HDMI... I just may have to bit the bullet in this deal and get a new Slingbox that supports HDMI...
I recently upgraded my comcast xfinity to the X1. They new box does not have component out. I went back to comcast and said I had an old TV without HDMI and they told me they don't make boxes with component cables anymore.
Anybody else run into this situation? What can I do?
