SlingPlayer for iPhone/iPod touch, SlingPlayer for iPad offer TV-out feature

If you are using the latest update to SlingPlayer for iPhone/iPod touch or SlingPlayer for iPad, this article shows you how to get video out from your mobile device to an attached TV or monitor.

For information on setting up the TV-out feature, watch the short video below.

A few notes about this feature:

  • Video out only works with the Slingbox 500, 350, PRO-HD, or SOLO with the latest firmware installed. If you're not sure which firmware version your Slingbox has, see "More information about Slingbox firmware" below for more information.

  • Models earlier than the iPhone 4, iPad 2, or the latest iPod touch may not be able to use this trick.

  • SlingPlayer must be running in Auto or HQ streaming mode.

  • You must use:

    • the Apple Digital AV Adapter

    • the Apple Component AV Cable

    • Visit the Apple Store online for more information and product availability.

  • A wireless version of this same trick is available with Airplay, if both your iOS device and your Apple TV are on the same WiFi network. The How to watch your Slingbox on a TV article (linked below) walks through this process.
