I'm not sure about this, but I believe the new STBII's with the channel 3/4 switch only loop RF through when off. When these iViews are on, the RF modulator is always on too, since there's no firmware setting to control it any more.

A splitter is a quick, easy, and cheap fix. But if you really want loop-through when on, you could return or sell it and either:
  • try to buy an older iView w/o the channel 3/4 switch (e.g., on eBay)
  • buy a clone (e.g., Homeworx) that hasn't added the channel 3/4 switch.
