Anybody have a Slingbox 500?

I just got one last night... the HDMI input was the determining factor to get one. However, I found out that due to HDCP "rules" you need to use component cables to actually view the content on a mobile device (iPad in my case).

Does anyone have the new slingbox 500 and if you do, are you running it thru a receiver? My issue comes from not quite understanding how the receiver should be wired up relative to the box.

Any help would be appreciated!
