I've had that before. Try switching the ends of the audio cables. So the red and white that are connected to the slingbox, connect to the cable box. Then the ones that were connected to the cable box, connect to the slingbox.
If that doesn't work, see if you can replicate the issue by connecting the component and audio cables from the cable box to the tv to see if you get the same issue. May be the cables or the cable box itself.
Ok so when i use my slingbox and open the sling player on my tablet. I can hear a constant rustling. i dont kno wwhat is causing this. It almost sounds like a fan blowing. or a washing machine running. has anyone else expierenced this and what did you do to fix? I will attach a video of this sound.
Thanks in advance
