A couple of devices a component to hdmi converter, but you need to be careful which ones work with SKY as the HDCP is problematic , sling sell a Gang u version? Have a look at the forums.
I use a HD Fury 4k splitter ( this device has a usb input and can change firmware)which is a hdmi version for the slingbox 500 which has a hdmi out.
Thanks for your reply. The only cable or box I need is, from HDMI out of the Sky Q box to Component in of the Slingbox, I don't need a splitter, as I'm not going to connect it to the TV in UK. Will check out the forums.
I found this on Amazon, do you think that this will work?
Portta Pethe HDMI to YPbPr Component RGB Video convertitore 1080i
I have the same problem.
I just bought this exact splitter on Amazon
(Portta Pethe HDMI to YPbPr Component RGB Video convertitore 1080i)
and i can't seem to get the video to stream (the audio does play through the splitter)
I'm guessing it's the splitter box that is the problem - as most people say you need the Fury splitter, which is FAR more expensive.
Does anyone know of the best way to connect sling box through component cables?
I have a similar component to hdmi to this on ebay item number 322148866367 and it works fine with sky hd (not Q) .
It's alot cheaper than the HD fury and works just aswell.
But amongst the cheaper options some do not work, I have first hand experience of purchasing the wrong non compatible converters.
It's trial and error but there are options to HD fury.
Hope this helps
