    Strange Slingbox app behavior IN MY CAR!  Slingbox app turns itself on in my car, without any wifi, and it works!  Help!

      When getting out of my Prius the other day, I did the normal stuff to shut down the engine, but I kept hearing some audio coming out of ....somewhere.  I checked my iPhone 6 and that's where the audio was coming from.  But the strangest part was there wasn't any app that was open when I double-tapped the home button.  The audio was from the last TV channel I was watching on the TV that's connected to my Slingbox.  But I wasn't connected to any wifi AND my car was now off!  But the audio kept coming through!  I went to my Slingbox app on my iPhone and "opened" it, and as soon as it opened, it must have realized that, "Oops, I'm not connected to anything so I better disconnect."  This was the only way I could stop the audio from coming through the iPhone.  This has happened 4 times now over the past two weeks, and I've had to open the Slingbox app each time to stop the audio. 

       

      My Prius will scan for a source of audio when it powers up:  Radio, Sirius XM, iPod, and my iPhone via Bluetooth.  But for it to be getting a Slingbox channel when the Slingbox app isn't open and there's no wifi connection is baffling!


      Does anybody know what's going on here?
