    I am having a Motorola HD set-top box (dct5100) delivered by Comcast. This is how I intend to connect it:

    component video to 36xbr800
    digital optical audio to a/v receiver

    my question has to do with the coaxial input into the dct5100.

    option 1: connect the outside coaxial cable to the 36xbr800 via vhf/uhf; run coaxial cable to the dct5100 from the "to converter"; component video back to the 36XBR800

    option 2: split the outside coaxial cable; run one branch to the 36xbr800; run the other branch to the dct5100; component video between dct5100 and 36xbr800

    basically, the question comes down to which splitter is better - external or internal within the 36xbr800

    also, i am wondering which option makes PIP easier, or if there is any difference at all.
