    Slingbox wants Component connection, but that affects PQ on TV!

      Hi,

       

      I have a Slingbox 350 and a Vizio 42" 720p TV, fed by a DirecTV HR24 receiver. I get a message telling me that the HDMI cable won't work and to attach component to the TV.

       

      When I do, the picture quality on the TV is badly affected with a line through the picture and a difference in color on either side. If I connect an HDMI cable, all is fine, but I can't sling!

       

      Anyone seen this? What can I do? I've tried swapping cables and inputs with no luck. It'll work sometimes, but I'm having to  connect and disconnect the HDMI cable in order to sling or watch the TV.
