SlingBox with DirecTV

jerrybudd

I need some help using my SlingBox 500 with my DirecTV service. I currently have the SlingBox connected to the HD Whole House DVR and it works great.  However I'd like to move it to another Genie receiver in the house so I can watch something remotely (when I'm away from home), while the HD Whole House DVR is being watched by someone else at home.  Problem is the Genie remote receivers (Model C41-700) don't have component output signals (the SlingBox 500 requires both HDMI and component inputs to operate).  Is there another Genie receiver that has component output or is there another workaround for this.  I don't want to have to get another HD DVR receiver to be able to do this.
