    Any ideas on how I can connect the HR24-500 to both my HDTV and Slingbox Classic? According to the Slingbox, if there is an available output on my Receiver, I can use it to connect to Slingbox. So I have HDMI out (from HR24) to TV, and tried S-Video out (from HR24) to slingbox, but it isn't getting a signal from HR24.

    So you have composite out to Slingbox and HDMI out to your TV? Did you change any settings on your HR24?

    I have an HR24 with a Slingbox, and all you have to do is hook it up. All the outputs are active at the same time.

    As Mr. Sweet has stated, all the outputs are open. So you should be able to use the S-Video.

    I have (in my basement) an HR21-100 with HDMI to the 50" DLP and component and audio outs to my new SlingBox Solo!!! Love it!!!!!

    I had the same issue. In order for my slingbox to work without the whole system on I have to unplug the HDMI cable. If the receiver is on, no trouble it works fine, but if everything BUT the DVR is off, then the HDMI cable has to be unplugged from the DVR.
    If anyone has the answer to this issue, I'd love to hear it as well.

    Interesting, cuz I was thinking that this could not be a HR24 issue, and I would have to say it would not be a D* receiver issue. So try what Blair says and see what happens. Can you hook up the HR24 with component and S-video to the Sling and see what happens.

    Not sure I understand. It's not working for me even WITH the HR24 on...

    I'll give it a shot and report back.

    I have a Sling Classic with s-video and audio cables running from my DVR and HDMI running to the TV (and audio out to the A/V receiver). It works fine for me. If all of the components are off I turn the DVR on with the remote wherever I'm slinging (computer or phone) and none of the other components have to be on. - sheureka

    Ok, Follow up....there is only one audio out on the HR24 so how can I connect it via S-video to Slingbox and via component cables to TV and have sound on both?

    Do you have the same receiver I do?

    This from Slingbox forum:

    The HDMI connection will most likely shutdown the analog ports due to High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).

    Crap, you're right, I remember now that the Hx24's only have the one audio out. My bad. Do you have another box (Hx2x) that you could hook it to just to by pass the HDMI and see if it's that. I don't get why it would be an HR24 issue but there has been HDMI handshake issues in the past.

    I have this hooked up through my HR21-100 without any issues (component to Sling Solo and HDMI to Pannasonic DLP)

    I'm guessing you are using the L&R out for your TV? I use the optical for my surround sound.. you could just use a "Y" cable to split it to slingbox..

    :confused:
    Yeah, THAT goes without saying, that is not my issue at the moment.
    No other DTV boxes (that aren't in use) except for a VERY old one from testing days, oh, and a CNX over the air receiver
    Yeah, no surround sound, I'm going straight to TV

    So it's moot to even disconnect HDMI and connect to tv via components as there is no HDMI caused conflict or output shutoff.

    I have two Slingbox Classics (both connected to HR22-100's) and one Slingbox Pro (connected to HR24-500). All 3 are connected to TV with HDMI (one using a DVI adapter) and to Sling via either s-video or composite video, and red/white audio. Where necessary, I used Y cables for the audio to feed it to two places.

    I have never had a problem getting audio and video, with or without TV on.

    Component to TV, Composite to Slingbox and 2 Y adapters for audio is your best bet .. Click on picture to go to source.
