    I've had my slingbox for years and it's worked perfectly, until a few months ago. It gave me an error message that the content was not supported by an HDMI cable and told me to use component cables. Why the change?

      Why does my slingbox no longer work when my TV is using an HDMI cable? The error message says the content is not compatible with HDMI and wants me to use component cables. Unplugging my TV's HDMI cable worked a couple of times, but now that no longer works either. I've used my slingbox for years without a problem. Now it no longer works. My suspicion is that it has something to do with Sling TV. Please respond if you've had a similar problem and know how to fix it. Thanks!
