          You must be using the same TV source (cable/satellite) for both your Home TV and the Slingbox.  If you want to watch different channels you need 2 TV sources.

           

          Or do you have 2 sources but the IR blaster is affecting both boxes ?   Your post doesn't make it clear.

              Sorry for not clear situation.

               

              Here is my setup

               

              Cable/Sat -> Recorder (Sharp BD-HDW43) -> output 1. HDMI to AV receiver (ONKYO TX-NR636) -> TV

              --------------------------------> output 2. RCA to Slingbox350

               

              I actually bought slingbo350 HD converter version, but due to no extra HDMI output and i need to keep that for Audio so using RCA now. Or if you might know how to set it up? i have tried but failed many times.

              I couldn't figure out why it keep changing channels while remoting.

                  You appear to be using the output from the recorder to feed both the TV and the Slingbox.   So when you change channels using the Slingbox then you are actually changing the channel on the recorder (or the cable/sat) so that will automatically change the channel on the TV as well. 

                   

                  Why do you think you can view 2 different channels ?    If you were using the RCA output to feed a second TV you wouldn't expect to view a different channel would you ?
