This is the box I have, fwiw, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8000 DVR:
I have the same cable box and yes, the PIP provided by the cable box does work without splitting the signal. BUT, my 50" big screen has split screen viewing rather than PIP, a nice feature for the upcoming football season. I had to install a splitter, one feeding the cable box and the other feeding the coax input on the TV in order for the split screen to work.
