    Yeah... Just use the Svideo & Analog audio out. Use the normal remote that you would use for an S3 and all will work just fine. :)

    Yep, s-video works great. If the HD is like the S3, it will output anamorphically correct 16:9 content to the s-video port, which the slingbox handles perfectly.

    sorry, i wasn't explicit enough. there is only one a/v output on a 652 (or svideo) and no rf output.

    What? It has s-video, component, composite, and HDMI outputs. Use the s-video for your slingbox and the component or HDMI for the TV.

    The classic Slingbox, has both S-Video in and S-Video out. So....

    Take an S-video OUT of the Tivo... INTO the slingbox, OUT of the slingbox and INTO the TV.

    Same with the Stereo audio... out of the Tivo, into the slingbox, out of the slingbox into yoru TV or Stereo.

    so, in your experience plugging into the s-video doesn't disable the composite output? somehow i thought i remembered that it did.

    one does not disable the other.

    thanks!! it worked like a champ. later (after i've purchased another 652, probably after tivo offers a lifetime upgrade) i'll have to figure out how to get a second 652 to hook up to my slingbox (my 649 is presently hooked up via the rf)!
