SlingBox, HDMI, Component, No Video Signal.
Hello all I have seen other posts here about this but have not seen a solution that will work for me for this problem. My setup is this
U-verse Mot VIP 1200 in my home office hooked to a Dell Monitor Via HDMI. The 1200 is also hooked to my SlingBox Pro Via Componenet cables. All works well as long as the Dell monitor is on and the sling box works and component signal is fine. However as soon as the Dell monitor is turned off I get a message on the SlingBox that The U-Verse box cannot find a video device to output to via HDMI. Turn on the Dell and problem goes away.
I realize it is using the HDMI to sense if the monitor is on and only display video if it thinks it is on but is there a way to trick it to think it is on with the monitor off? Right now my wife has to be home when I am on the road to turn on the monitor for me.
I have tried a powered HDMI hub thinking that might trick it to no avail. I also thought switching the HDMI output to DVI and back might make it not able to tell if the monitor was on but it still sees it as off. Any ideas????
