    component only input?

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I'm a longtime Slingbox user and currently have the Slingbox 500. I recently switched to Comcast X1 and all works but:

      the only X1 compatable cable box that has component outputs doesn't support some of the features that make the X1 system fun such as voice command, and also won't allow for pause, rewind, etc. while watching a live show. If I get an HDMI to component adapter I can use the more versatile X1 box but they only have the one HDMI Out port as well as a composite video output. Can I hook up the Slingbox 500 using only the component output that would be created using the adapter mentioned above? In the past I have always had both an HDMI and component inputs to the Slingbox. If I do that do I lose anything?
