By links, do you mean you can't see the images I posted? I'll try in this
But I have a DirecTV C31-700 (it's not the main living room receiver but a
smaller bedroom receiver). I bought a 10-pin component cable to connect
from the receiver to the back of the Slingbox. So I have it going 10-pins
from C31 that converts to Red/Blue/Green/Red/White HD into the IN's on the
Slingbox. I don't actually have the Slingbox hooked up to a TV because I
took the TV with me, but that technically shouldn't stop me from being able
to watch online. Let me know if this makes sense.

OK, now I can see the pictures. I don't have much experience of the 10-pin plug but it all looks OK.
The fact that you get that message means the video signal is getting through, so this has nothing to do with the Slingbox. I assume the device is actually switched on ? Have you checked to see if HDCP is affecting you (Unplug any HDMI cables from your main receiver and see if the video appears)
The DirecTV reciever was switched on (even though I believe that shouldn't
necessarily matter as I should be able to watch anything thru my slingbox
without having to be there to turn the receiver on and off every time, that
would defeat the purpose and I hope I'm right about that..) But even if,
yes the receiver was on, I was getting audio, but still no video. I don't
know what HDCP is. Do you mean unplug HDMI cables from the main living
room receiver I'm not hooked up to? Also, I did unplug all HDMI cables
from my receiver. It's only that 10-pin to the slingbox that is plugged

I don't know what HDCP is.
Google it or search on here. There are dozens and dozens of posts about it.

And have you tried plugging the component leads into a TV to see if they are working. If you get the same message on the TV then it has nothing to do with the Slingbox and you will have to check out the DirecTV forum.
