Will installing a splitter enable my friend at ground zero to watch his favorite cable TV programs while I'm watching the cable channels thru his PC at the same time? As long as his PC is on, I can watch whatever I want and he can, too, correct? Would this configuration affect either of our remotes? Any other problems using the splitter?
It depends on your configuration. Let me pose a different question to you: If you bought another TV for your bedroom and used a splitter then would you be able to watch a different channel to the main TV or would you have to rent another cable box from your provider. ?
The answer will be the same for the Slingbox.
