    Slingbox 500 just comes on out of nowhere


      Hi folks,

      Has this happened to you? I was just watching regular cable tv shows at home and all of a sudden out of nowhere the slingbox just comes on and interrupts my program and starts doing this setup thing and takes over as if I were opening it on my ipad. I could not get it to switch back so I had to unplug the whole thing and switch my hdmi cord from bypassing to slingplayer back to original cable setup. I couldn't get rid of it. It has done this twice now and there is no method to the madness like a certain time that I have it set to come on (if they even have that option).

      Very frustrating. I am one of the original purchasers of Slingbox from when they first came out and have loved them always. But I have had it disconnected during moving this last year and just set it up again and now it has done this. I have never had this problem before. Maybe do you think it's mad because Ted the dips----t Cruz one the Iowa Causcus tonight? LOL

      Thanks in advance for any help.
