Hi, I have a Motorola DCT-2000 cable box and SA Series 2. In order to watch a live program while one is recording, I have split the cable: Split 1: to the cable box > TiVo Split 2: directly to the TV My problem is that I must be on the hairy edge with signal strength, as I'm now getting some screen garbage, pixelation, and slight signal interuption. In researching the cable box, I came across the RF Bypass setting. http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/DCT2000/downloads/DCT2000_User_Guide.pdf (page 21) Can the RF Bypass on the cablebox be used in leiu of a splitter, or does this only work when the cable box is off? (I have read both). I don't have an extra bypass box but RF bypass appears to be built into the unit itself (as noted in the manual). If I can't use this feature as intended, are there any suggestions as to how I can split the cable without the signal degradation? I've heard the RF signal boosters are not great... what are my options? Thanks!
