    Slingbox M2 with HDMI Cable


      I have a new M2 which I am attempting to use with a Comcast cable modem that only has HDMI output.  I purchased an HDMI to component cable (5 lead) to connect the two boxes, however the M2 does not see any video feed when attempting to setup.  Will this work, or do I need to upgrade to the 500 unit that has an HDMI port?  Thank you.

          Those cables never work.  HDMI is a digital signal and the Component signal the Slingbox uses is analog, so a cable can never convert it.   You need a proper HDMI to Component converter box.    Search on the forum, there are lots of suggestions.
