Re: V6 and Slingbox wont work together ! ! !

There is only one output from a Virgin V6 box, that is HDMI, there is no conventional SCART output, I know it is labelled as such. I wish to connect from the V6 to any Slingbox, so logically HDMI to HDMI converter (HD Fury) to component on the Slingbox, as you say Red, White Yellow and Audio, with no monitor or TV. Can you confirm you are using the round SCART output, (this is not the conventional configuration/shape of a scart plug), as all postings on the V6 say that this socket is not enabled.

No I am not using the round scart socket on the V6. I use the HDMI socket from the V6 box via a splitter to HDMI -SCART converter, then a SCART lead to the Slingbox. All works.

Re: V6 and Slingbox wont work together ! ! !

@Macs777 Can I ask which one you use please as I have an original Slingbox and still have a TiVo the only reason I have held off changing to the V6 is the fact this stops my Slingbox working.

A link to the product on Amazon would be great.

Thanks for your help

Re: V6 and Slingbox wont work together ! ! !

Thanks I managed to connect the slingbox to the v6 with a HDMI to scart converter.. but it seem that I will have to take the HDMI cable out of the converter and put it in the tv to watch it on my TV set.

is there another way?

thanks

You can get HDMI splitters that allow you to connect a STB to multiple display devices at the same time.

Re: V6 and Slingbox wont work together ! ! !

Hi,

Apologies if you have already solved this but I have been fiddling around since getting my new V6 box and have finally got the slingbox connected and working fine on it.

All the bits to do it were bought on Ebay around £20

If anyone needs the info on how to do it let me know and I will do a breakdown of parts and connection details.

Regards

Simon

Simon I am coming late to this debate and am considering a Tivo 6, but Slingbox connectivity is essential. A step by step low-teach easy version would be great.

 

Thanks

Re: V6 and Slingbox wont work together ! ! !

Hi Simon,

this would be very useful information - I have a V6 and a Slingbox M1 and have not got them running together yet.

Knowing the right cables and connections would be great.

Cheers JLittleman
