I'm contemplating adding a Slingbox and am trying to confirm a couple of set-up issues:
Current set-up: DVR-STB is Motorola VIP 1225 hooked to TV via HDMI
Can the VIP 1225 simultaneously output to the HDMI and component or does it shut down HDMI when component is connected.
Any issues with the IR blaster that comes with the Slingbox. ie. is it compatible with Phillips RCCM infrared protocol
is the Slingbox IR blaster a proximity type or does it have to be afixed over the IR eye of the DVR-STB (I'm asking because I already have an IR flasher stuck over the window as part of a IR extender)
I had a buddy who had problems getting the Slingbox cat5e ethernet connection to work, is it better to plug the ethernet into the residential gateway or can it go into a switch that is plugged into the gateway (I've got an extensive Cat5e network but I've put my DVR, Apple Airport Extreme, and AT&T microcell directly into the back of the residential gateway and other STB's and computers through a switch).
