      What is the purpose of the hdmi out on the 500 if component is required?

          I have wondered that same thing myself.  The best that I can come up with is pass through for viewing on a TV set at the Slingbox.  Obviously, the shortcoming is that each have to view the same program.

            I think it's a shame that I cannot contact a rep or at least that's it's $30 for assistance. Hopefully others will chime in. Thanks for replying!

                Ok,so I found a video I can use and also explains a member's comment. Hdmi out is just that (to the tv). But there's the risk of the infamous hdcp. So use the components too (from set-top to sling only) and if need be change input from sling settings (as someone mentioned). It'll still output thru the hdmi. Now there is no need for additional equipment,i.e splitters. That was my concern;having all those cables running into the tv but it's still just the hdmi. Thanks!
