almost... most likely your cable box won't have another input/ouput
and instead just connect the PVR-350 TV-Out to your TV. (ie. the only
input to the cable box should be from the wall) This is usually done
with a coax or s-video... not sure what the PVR-350 has.

>From what I gather you want:
from wall -> splitter to TV input 1 and cable box input
from digital cable box-> PVR-350
from PVR-350 -> TV input 2

TV should have 2 inputs, one from the wall and the other from the PVR-350 TV Out
cable box should have 1 input from the wall (and later another from
the serial port or ir blaster to change the channel but you can leave
out this step for testing purposes)
PVR-350 should have one input from the cable box

You are essentially putting your mythtv computer in between your cable
box and your TV.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. - Gandhi
