    Hi,

    Is it possible to split a cable output between a TV and a Digital Terrestrial card or would i need a second cable box? If so, what would i need to do so?

    Thanks,

    Darryl

    The RF input on digi-tv cards is normally passed through, so you then connect the RF output to the TV.
    However, it will NOT transmit the Digi-TV channel the card is tuned to into the RF cable (Unlike set-top boxes/sky). You only view that channel on the PC.
    So if you want to watch digi-tv on a TV, then either a separate box, or if possible connect the PC output to the TV via suitable cable
