I don't think this is true in all situations.  My cable system broadcasts 
regular cable alongside digital cable so I can run the coax directly to the 
TV card.  I don't get all of the digital channels but that's okay.  Moving 
the splitter to the cablebox output will only work if your cablebox has 
passthrough.  Mine does not, it will only output the channel selected by the 
cablebox .
