Question about Televison & Video
If the splitter is working, and the recorder has a built in digital tuner (ensure), then you should be able to receive channels only using the recorder. In that case you should be able to watch TV while recording on another channel simply by setting channels on recorder tuner, and then by choosing the desired channel number on recorder instead to use the input channel (line in, or AV) fromi tuner box.
If the recorder has its own tuner you can also disconnect tuner box from recorder input and connect the AV cables (red white and yellow) from tuner box straigh to TV. In this way you will be able to use cable box with VCR box.
If the recorder does not have a built in digital tuner you won't be able to watch TV while recording on another channel.
You can find out if recorder has a built in digital tuner disconnecting digi box and attempting to set and use the channels on recorder only.
