    I'm pretty sure that this model has a dual tuner (two coaxial inputs). This is how I have my Tosh 50H81 with digital cable set up:

    1) First, You'll need to get a 2-way coaxial splitter.

    2) Split the cable from the wall. One line goes directly to the TV, the other goes to the cable box (like you have it now-with the S-video to the TV).

    This will allow you to utilize the PIP, however, you will only be able to watch the digital cable channels on one side. The other will be channels that you would normally get without the converter box.

    Hope this helps.

    My setup is just like Tommy's is. If you really want to be able to see the digital stations on the PIP, you'll need a second digital cable box. Basically, the digital cable box is the only available tuner for digital stations. Your TV's built-in tuner (or VCR if you're using that) can't tune a digital station, which is why you can only see one at a time.
