Are you saying I have to wire a certain way? Maybe I am not understanding correctly
For those boxes that do not support "RF Pass Thru", in order to alternatively
view digital and analog stations, you must either:
1. Use a standard cable RF Splitter on the antenna coax to feed both the CECB
box and your old TV. Since the coax on the TV is now occupied, you can only
connect CECB to TV via L/R/Video cables (typically White/Red/Yellow).
[Major drawback is reduction in sensitivity by about 4 dB, due to loss in RF Splitter.]
2. Use an RF Switch on the antenna coax to feed the CECB and your old TV,
using either an inexpensive manual switch (it's bidirectional):http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-.../dp/B0002ZPIQ4
or one with remote control:http://www.radioshack.com/search/ind...=150-1968&sr=1
Of course, even with RF Pass Thru, you'll have to switch between changing digital
channels on the CECB box and analog (NTSC) channels on your old TV.
[Which would have been avoided if they had allowed an integrated NTSC tuner.]
