I purchased two of these adapters for my slingboxes. These were the only solution I could find. Order took a while to arrive. One is working well and I believe one is defective. Support included with the adapters is practically non-existent. Notified the company 11 days ago with no response. Must be nice to have no worries that abysmal customer service will not affect your bottom line when you are the only option around.
Apparently there is a necessary adapter for the x1 box. this converts the hdmi output on the cable box (this is the only output on x1 boxes) into a hdmi and component video output(the colored cables included with the slingbox). The rep at slingbox informed me that they recommend a hdmi to component adapter from a company called Gang Hu. The only problem is there is a backorder until sometime next month. Did anyone run into the same problem and find another solution? Perhaps another adapter box that I can order and receive faster than a month? All help is thankful.
