Split your cable out of the wall twice. One will go to your cable box; ultimately going to box and out to hdmi cable. 2, from splitter, connect a second cable straight to the back of the tv and the pip will light up and then you can view two screens

My experience with an LE40R74BDX is that PIP is only available between the different input types of 1:- VGA, 2:- HDMI and 3:- everything else. It is not available between any 2 items in the everything else category. So you must have at least one of the other input types in use (I use HBMI for my cable box). Hope this reassures you, it's down to design not a fault.

The pip got stuck using a universal remote..i cannot clear it no matter what button I use


If you can access the Menu options with your present universal remote, get into it, and surf thorugh picture adjustment and PIP adjustment screen, and set the PIP option to OFF. If you can't access the Menu option with your present remote control, there is no other way to do this without its original remote control.

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)


Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    Note:
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    Note:
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

this manual; for different combinations), Size (The size of the little box to watch the second signal) and
Position (Where you want to place the little box with the second signal).
If POP (Regularly called Picture-by-Picture) is selected, you will only have the option to select the Input
as the screen will display the two different signals side by side; each one occupying half of the screen.
Using the AUDIO key allows you to select which audio
