Problem with Splitting dtv signal

#1
Hey folks, I thought I was going to get by without having a problem converting to DTV. I was wrong ;)

I just purchased a DVR and I want to split the video signals both which I think are by coax or RF (whatever it's called), one to the DVR and one to the TV. When I split the signal using a 2 way splitter my dad gave me, the DVR works fine, but when I switch to the TV, it doesn't display anything. I spoke on the phone with my dad and he thinks it's a signal strength issue, but I'm not sure.

Help me (and help me watch my Cowboys!)

your coax should in from antenna to antenna in on converter box come out of the converter to tv and go to the antenna in on the dvr then out to tv on the dvr to the tv then you should not need a spliter:)
