VCR Taping with new digital box

I have read that you can't watch another channel while at the same time recording a different channel with a VCR.  Since this is the main reason I own a DVD/VCR combo, so I can tape my programs while people watch other channels,  I find this incredibly backward.  Not everyone in the house likes watching the same programs, and I don't have PVR or HD.  This 'upgrade' is a downgrade for me.


Does someone know more about using a cable splitter to get round this problem? Is it difficult to set up?  What would it look like?


I guess I'll be watching less tv in future.  How is this an improvement, again?
