      Can a Slingbox 350 connect directly to TV with a router but without a cable or satellite box?

          Not sure if you actually understand how a Slingbox works.  What EXACTLY are you trying to do ?

              My Slingbox worked perfectly in House #1 but I had to move it to House #2 where my friend and I have tried unsuccessfully to get it to work. You suggested a factory reset with a laptop but I have no idea how to do that. My other option is House#3 that has a router and TV with a digital antenna but no cable or satellite box. I understand the Slingbox takes the signal from the cable box and sends it over the internet thru the router.

              So , do you think it's possible to hook up the Slingbox to the router and TV. I can have my friend turn on the TV and put on the right channel. I only want to watch a football game once a week. Thanks.

                  Why didn't you just Google "Slingbox factory reset" ?    That would have told you straight away.  (You hold in the reset button on the back until the lights flash twice)

                   

                  Yes, if that TV has a component or composite output (Actually VERY unusual) then you could plug it into the 350 input and watch it from a remote location.
