Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I am having trouble using my Tivo Mini with a Slingbox Pro-HD. I had some breakout cables lying around so I used the "AV Out" and "Component Out" to "Component In" and "Audio In" on back of the Slingbox Pro-HD. I then went out from the Slingbox Pro with component and audio, to the corresponding inputs on the TV, but when I go thru Slingbox setup, I get no audio or video. What am I doing wrong? The breakout cables I am using should work, right? Or should I buy some of the breakout cables listed in this thread. BTW, when I moved the Slingbox Pro to my Roamio Plus and used component OUT from the Roamio to the component IN on back of the Slingbox Pro, I got a picture in the Sling web setup? I could really use some help. Thanks.

have you tried hooking your breakout cables to the tv to see if it works? There is no standard for break out cables so the ones you have may or may not work.

Just try swapping each of the RCA connectors of the breakout cables around until you find the one that has the right video signal for each corresponding jack. Each TRS (Tip/Ring/Sleeve) to RCA breakout has a different pin out configuration and the one you're using must not match the one TiVo designed the mini for. For example the red may be actually the blue video channel, green may be red, etc. Do the same for the composite AV breakout to get the proper audio channels as well. If you hear a loud buzzing with those, then that is the composite video being run into an audio jack.
