    Turn on Console then have to change channel on cable box for console to see signal.

    Your splitting the cable source to your box and xbox?

    It's probably laggy. And it only responds when a change is done on the box. I.E. Changing channel.

    When you change the channel it reacts by sending the signal to which every source initiated it. I have a 4 port splitter that did that.

  3. Question about this whole Cable/Satellite thing....

    I've never heard of needing another dish for another box. Must dishes have several outputs that run upto 5 boxes with dvr needing to inputs instead of one. The only way you all have to watch the same thing is if your splitting the cable out of the box into
    several tvs. Each box decodes the signal separate from the others so you problem isnt really a problem. If the cable is split before entering a box that box decodes if its split after the box the signals been decoded and plays on however many tvs its plugged
    into.

    TV doesn't show image when Xbox is on.

    Turn on Console then have to change channel on cable box for console to see signal.

    The Split is post cable box and pre xbox, the other hdmi line goes to a tv in another room. (best way to keep a girlfriend happy when your gamin ;) ) So the source is coming from the cable box to the xbox.

    Lack of HDMI Ports

    There is a way.

    You could use an HDMI Splitter (like this one
    http://amzn.to/1jSdFTL
    ) to split the Signal from your cable box. You'd have two separate outputs with the same signal from your cable box, one would go to the tv and one to the xbox.

    Hope this helps.
