No. In order to watch on Slingbox, the Slingbox must be controlling a "receiver", i.e., a cable box or satellite box.
The one box cannot receive and display two different channels at the same time.
Think of the Slingbox as just another TV. If you connect one TV to your cable box using HDMI and hook up another TV to the same cable box using component cables, you can't watch two different shows at the same time on the two TVs.
I suggest you pick up a second cable box. Used boxes are often available cheaply. You don't need a fancy, high end box. Connect it to your cable signal and use it exclusively for the Slingbox. That's what I do.
