    Slingbox Solo & selecting tuner, if needed

    Gibby2u Newbie

      My cable company does not provide a set-top box for program viewing. The cable connects directly to the TV.

      Question. Must I always have a tuner from another unit that is hooked up to the Slingbox Solo to get streaming video remotely?

      Can I feed the RF cable into and out of a SONY Combo DVD Player/Video Casette Recorder (Model SLV-D350P) and get the Slingbox Solo to work? I do not know whether the Sony Combo has a tuner; I think not, but not sure. It does have many connections (inputs/outputs) on the back; I'd say all of them that the Solo would need.

      Again, the back has input and output for RF cable.

      Thanks!
