Ok, tried to connect using component and composite, still same problem, so as suspected it has nothing to do with HDMI connection.

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?

There's only one Analog audio out, there are 2 digital audio outputs.

You can use component with one of the opticals. Or, if you must use Analog for both, split the analog output.

Oh, ouch. That has me worried. I come to the conclusion that its a Sling Classic issue? If so, would a Sling Solo or Sling Pro be in your near future for a purchase?

I think it has to be something on the Sling side of things really. But I am hoping I am wrong, for your benefit so you don't have to buy a new one.

Has anyone confirmed that the Svid and analog audio outputs turn off when using HDMI?? I am looking to upgrade from an HR20 to an HR24 with my sling classic as well.

The S-Video and analog audio outputs stay on even if you're using HDMI.

Go to Radio Shack and buy 2 Y adapters for the audio outputs. Split your 1 audio out in to 2. I have this setup here in my office. Svideo/RCA Audio 1 to TV, RCA Video 1/RCA Audio 2 with Y adapter to Slingbox and RCA Video 2/RCA Audio 2 with Y adapter to ChannelPlus channel modulator. Works without a hitch.

I was going to use splitters for audio and video with my H24-700 and Slingbox A/V... I happened to find a four-way component/composite video distribution amp on clearance at RadioShack for $18.97; I can give you the SKU if you're interested.

Why is there a need to split the audio cables? Plug the L-R audio cables from your HR24 into the Slingbox Audio In then connect the cable from the Slingbox Audio Out to your TV. The Slingbox is specifically designed to pass through the signal so you can use devices without multiple outputs.

Is the one DTV box all you have? I have my Slingbox Classic hooked up to a second DTV box that is rarely used for watching TV locally. I used to have mine on the HD box with no problems.

Also, when trying to run the Slingbox off your HD DTV box via S-video or composite, have you selected the correct input (on menu: Connect, Video Input) on the Slingbox?

I may have scanned thru this thread and missed it but my guess is the MPAA is a pain in the *** and the government just plays along because they don't have a clue. Those that steal and boot leg will still figure out a way to do it but we can't simply "record" a movie for future viewing. Anyway, I've read that certain programmers and early releases they can shut off the analog outputs because they are not encrypted. It's complicated and It's all BS. Here's a link to get you started on what the deal may be...

I believe they can turn off the component video (which is analog) HD output, but they do not turn of the composite video or s-video outputs (also analog) SD outputs.

Guy(s), although you're all trying to be helpful, but are going in the wrong direction as far as solving the problem.

I have plenty of experience with sling media's lineup (both discontinued and current models).

The HR24 as with all directv HRx series models have ALL video and audio outputs active simultaneously. This is not the case with many other companies equipment such as some cable box companies dvrs as expressed and seen all over the net....

Here's the actual potential causes of the issue at hand and the way to get it up and and runing.

1. Make sure you have the latest slingplayer app release installed on your computer. Do NOT use the online setup configuration as some people are having problems with being kicked back to the origional screen after entering their admin password. Install slingplayer descktop for pc or mac (depending on your computer) and run the setup wizard from within the app itself.
*Make sure your slingbox is runing the latest firmware released for it (in this case before it was discontinued.

2. In this case run HDMI out from the HR24 to the TV, then composite video and audio out from the HR214 to the slingbox. Make sure to indicate this connection type during the video setup/configuration wizard in step 1 above).

FYI;
The online version of setup is a good idea, the actual implementation is flawed at this point on most platforms; thus causing issues for many.
