Cable TV and coax splitters - Hookup splitter to Digital Cable

I wish to take my present Digital Converter (without leasing additional digital converters for each room) and split or run additional cable to any room (now supplied by a splitter in the attic) by some sort of A-B switch etc. I wish to be able to watch a digital channel that's playing in the den when I get tired to watch in my bedroom/computer room).
Presently, I have a signal to each room but only allows me to see up to channel 73. I just thought that an A-B or something in the line would give me additional choice of watching a station above 73 (even though it is one channel to watch in the bedroom that I can't get on the low-channels.
Is it possible, and if so, how will it be hooked up, any special equipment or hookup? Please advise as to what procedures to make this work.
thanks!

It sounds like what you want is similar to what I have (although I have DirecTV rather than digital cable). In any room in the house, I can watch any analog channel, or watch what the digital box is tuned to on channel 90.
To set this up you need a modulator (not one of the cheap ch 3/4 ones but a good versatile one like the one at http://www.smarthome.com/7760.html ). Connect the modulator to the output of the digital box, set it to a channel several channels above anything cable uses, and combine it with cable (a combiner is just a splitter that's turned around).
If you get interference, you may need to add a low pass filter (such as http://www.smarthome.com/7822c.html) on the analog cable line (be sure not to filter the signal to the digital box or a cable modem).
