Over the past few months my Sling at times on the client will have just audio, I can recover it by changing the resolution on the client from HQ to SQ, which starts to work and then switch back to HQ and then component ouputs work fine (until the next time it doesn't).

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Hi folks, was AFK for the weekend.

My normal setup is HR-24 to HDMI switchbox to Samsung HL-T6187 via HDMI and HR-24 to Slingbox SOLO via both component and composite (I added the composite connection when the component one stopped working).

To eliminate possible HDCP issues, I currently have the HDMI completely unplugged from the back of the HR-24 altogether. So right now I basically have an HR-24 only plugged into the Slingbox via component and composite.

I did a reset again and this time it seemed to work. The Slingbox did freak out for a couple of seconds and I thought it wasn't working again, but it did give an error about receiving a 1080p signal and then eventually starting working properly. Can the HR-24 send out 1080p through the component? I know you can't turn it on in the menus normally without having an HDMI connection.

After doing this, I reattached the HDMI and the switchbox to the HR-24 and my TV and now everything is working. Very strange.

One thing that I did change between the old setup and now was to change the input I used on my TV. For some reason the audio isn't working on the input-1, so I used the input-2 and it's working again. I suppose that could be some weird HDCP thing also or just an HDMI failure in general. The picture works fine on input-1 though, so it's also possible that the audio was messed up in the settings of the TV (I have an 11 month old who LOVES to play with remotes, so it's entirely possible)

So as it stands now, everything appears to be working, but I have no idea what made it stop working and exactly what caused it to start working again, but I'm not going to worry about it too much until it stops again. If anybody else has a similar issue, I would try resetting the box a few times with the HDMI disconnected while watching the progress on the Slingbox.

Anyone ever figure this problem out? I'm having a very similar problem with an identical setup, except in my case the video is perfect and there is no sound at all--except on the DirecTV info channels.
