Tried to split my Comcast digital cable to another television set, but cant get past 30 stations.?

Could it be the splitter it's self? When I try and look on the upper stations the tv says the program will appear soon; what could be the problem?

Update:

Well I have the box also; the cable is split from the main box to the secondary box and right into the television.

    The first 30 channels are considered "basic cable". If you have "extended cable" (channels above 30) you need a cable box to view these channels. Simply splitting the cable wire is not enough to view all the channels on a set. Only what they consider to be basic cable is what you are allowed to view without a box. This is how the cable company makes money by renting you a box for each TV. Sorry about that.
