Bluesky and Slingbox 500

I have been told on Chat with Shaw that Bluesky is not at all compatible with Slingbox. Is this true and if not has anyone had any success connecting Slingbox to the Bluesky cable box?

Not applicable

I got my Slingbox M2 to work. I had to try a couple different HDMI to Component adapters though. The first adapter I bought passed though to the TV fine, but when i tried to watch on the Slingplayer, the audio was fine but the video was all scrambled.

I ordered a Portta converter off of Amazon that other people said worked. It has worked for me so far as well. There is also a converter that Slingbox recommends on their website. I read somewhere online what the difference is between converters, but I can't remember what it was. There is something that doesn't work with Slingbox though.

Laceybob, maybe try a different converter because it sounds like you are having a similar problem that I had.

And to the original question from sidshugarman, my Slingbox works with Bluesky.
