Plugging eyetv hd in to my cable box

my cable box only has one output (3 prongs-RGB) for video. Is it possible to watch TV on my Television as well as having my cable box hooked up to the eyeTV console? Or do i need to have a cable box that allows me to have more than one component hooked into it?

    You would need to get a y splitter so you can hook up your box to your tv and the eyetv hd or you would need a video out on you tv but your tv would need to be on to record.
