I’m kind of sick of waiting for live streaming channels so I’ve decided to take the plunge and get one of the new Sling Boxes for Christmas. I’ve read of issues with HDCP, RF remotes, and more… can someone please answer a few newbie questions and provide any additional suggestions that would be helpful? My equipment: HR24 hooked up via HDMI to TV for video, digital optical to audio receiver. Cat5 wire available. H24 hooked up via HDMI in bedroom, infrequently used TV. Need to drill hole in floor to run Cat5 cable. I have NFL ticket but no premium channels (HBO) 1) Has anyone used the new Sling Box 350 vs 500 to provide any feedback? 2) HDCP: Only premium channels like HBO? Or does this affect more? Meaning is it just not worth the risk, should you go component and just get the 350? 3) If I go Component to Slingbox for video red/white composite to the slingbox for audio, can I also run the digital optical to the audio receiver and have both the composite and optical out put simultaneously? 4) Any fear of signal loss or audio delay by hooking up with that method? 5) Is there any way to still use the RF remote with my HR24 and the slingbox? I think the answer is no, but I really really like the RF remote so I’d consider putting it in the other room simply to not lose the RF in the living room. Potential downsides = needing to run Ethernet cable The 500 box has wireless but the price is crazy and if you lose channels via HDCP seems pointless. Any other suggestions for hook up? Advice would be appreciated!
