My question is this: I've recently upgraded my entire home theater. After rerunning it, I have my cablebox set to output through my HDMI to my receiver. Problem is, my slingbox doesn't have the ability to pass through HDMI. But, I don't want to lose my HD output to my TV just so the SlingBox will work.
So, what are my options? I see a Black "Digital Output" port on the back of the cablebox and Yellow "S/PDIF" ports on the back of the Slingbox Pro HD. Are these directly compatible?
As far as I know the slingbox pro HD doesn't support digital audio only RCA. I used the hdmi output for my home theater and just the component cable and rca (red and white) output for the slingbox. I have directv which have set top boxes that will allow output from hdmi and component at the same time. The signal doesn't have to be passed through the sling box just received so that it can be distributed. So you shouldn't need to rewire just add the component cables from the set top box to the sling box.
