My Configuration:
Win7 Ultimate
Virtual Clone Drive
HP DVD Play (for Blu-ray playback)
HP HTPC with GE Force 8800GT Video Card

I have one DVI port attached to my Sony 52" LCD (1080p) via HDMI using a DVI to HDMI Cable
I have the other DVI port connected to to my Slingbox Pro-HD via a DVI to Component (Red, Green, Blue) converter
The 2 ports are configured as clones

When I select a blu-ray title via MyMovies (.iso file), VCD correctly mounts the image, AnyDVD does it's thing and HP DVD Play Launches and appears to play the title. However, the movie image is only visible when viewed via SlingBox. On my Sony TV, the image is black.

This does not happen with DVD titles (VIDEO_TS format).

Another frustrating quirk is that even when I switch the 2 DVI ports between primary and secondary, the image only remains visible on the Slingbox.

Ultimately, I would be happy with a result that allowed me to view Blu-rays on the Sony, even if I couldn't watch them via SlingBox.

Any idea of what's going on here or what can be done to fix this?
