Hello! I'm Linda. Thanks for coming to JustAnswer. I'm your Computer Specialist.
Is it getting stuck on initializing?
What device are you connecting it to?
Will I get an answer soon, or I should forget it?
I need to analyze and troubleshoot your problem first bf I can tell u that.
What device are you connecting the slingbox pro-hd to?
I need to know this before I can help you
The time warner cable box to a wireless router (Trendnet TEW647GA)
Reboot the router and try again
I got a message that the connection from the slingbox to the internet has been disabled and retried a few times.
Did you reboot both devices, router first than the slingbox?
No. I will.
I did. I am again at the Initialize step and cannot get past that.
I'm going to change this posting to another expert whom is familiar with the slingbox better than I. Not sure why its stuck. Wait for another expert.

I got to the end but I cannot get a video signal
Did you double check all the connections to the sling box and made sure it is on the network?
If all looks good, then I would do a reset on the SlingBox and start over again.
