Must i have a splitter for starview and cable box?
explicit answers please
You need a splitter, as it is recomended that you keep your offical box connected, so your cable provider doesn't get suspicious that your box is never on. The official box constantly talks to the cable provider, telling them what on-demand programs you want to watch, what channels you have access to etc.
Hope this helps
can the cable companies detect another box running that dooes not conform to thier rules?
as far as I am aware (this information I have gained from this website) your official box, has a talk back function so it is alwasy in contact with your cable provider, your starview box doesn't have this option so, in theory your cable provider won't even know you are using it.
Sounds like their have been people on this forum who have been using their box for years without any problem.
I have had mine a month, and apart from doing the odd channel scan when I loose sound or some channels, I have been very happy and surprised with my starview. Wish I knew about this years ago, would have saved myself a fortune.
