    Remote watching directv with slingbox 500

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I've been using my Slingbox 500 for a couple of years now to watch my Directv from hotels all over the world.  At home I have the slingbox connected to the direct TV box using component cables and the HDMI connection.


      Today, I tried to set up to watch the US Women's open from from my hotel.  I can connect to watch  some channels, but Golf Channel and Fox Sports both give me the same message:  "Your TV does not support this program's content protection.  Replacing the TV's HDMI cable with component cables willl allow you to view the program.  (EXT.900)"


      Is there a way around this?  Very few channels can be accessed via singbox now.  No premium channels.D
