Xfinity's X-1 cable box does not have composite outs so I cannot connect my Slingbox 500. Frontier Factory seems to be the only converter that also includes an HDMI output so that both composite and HDMI signals are both sent to the Slingbox. I really don't want to spend $80 for the device but all other converters that I have seen do not have the HDMI out. Any suggestions?

Get a $20 1x2 HDMI splitter and a cheaper HDMI to component (composite?) converter.
Just pointing out that you say component in the title and talk about composite in your post. A bit confusing.
Edit: I see jagabo caught it too.
Edit:From what I've read, Xfiinty's signal is definitely protected and either the splitter and/or the converter has to be able to strip the protection. Not all do.
I used to use a Slingbox, but found too clunky and slow. I'm on Spectrum and just recently found out that their online viewing apps allows me to watch whatever I've recorded on my DVR. No need for a Slingbox. I would think Xfinity has a similar app.

I really don't care about watching dvr'd shows. I need real time remote viewing.
You can use Xfinity's app for streaming live TV.
"Watch anywhere, on any device, any time you like

I didn't mention live TV streaming in my other post because I thought that would be assumed to be a standard feature.
