I would like to hook up a Wii player to my television so that while doing the Wii fit program, I can continue to watch regular tv or a dvd. PIP comes up but I can not find any channel that comes up in the PIP screen.

You have to hook it up to a standard Yellow/Red/White RCA jack. If it doesn't work on one, try another. Make sure you're on the proper input you hooked it up to on the T.V. If this doesn't work, try hooking it up to a different T.V. to rule out the Wii as the problem. Try hooking up a DVD player to the same RCA jack as the Wii was on the Hitachi. After all of these troubleshooting methods, you should be able to get your Wii properly hooked up.
PiP only works if you have twin tuners built into TV.
You have 1 external source (dvd, VCR etc) playing at same time as watching TV.
You can then watch the two at same time and switch between the 2.
You have to tell the PIP what the other source is.

Allot depends on your DVD player and WII. Since the TV is a color one unless the movie your watching on the DVD player is B/W it will play in color, same with the WII. If your DVD player supports HDMI then select one of the HDMI ports on the TV (there are 3) same for the WII depending on what outputs it supports select one of the corresponding inputs on your TV. The user manual shows several options for various components and should be of some assistance in your connections.
It sounds like you may not be on the correct input selection on the tv to watch the dvd player. Ther are probably three or four inputs to choose from on your tv. whichever input you hooked the dvd player into on the tv is the same imput you have select using the tv's remote control in order to watch movies on the dvd player.
Make sure that whatever game you are playing (ie: Wii Fit) is fully loaded before pressing the power button.
If the light continues to go off, you may need to re-sync your Wii Fit balance board to the console. To do this, load Wii Fit, and when the program is running, press the red button inside the battery cover. Immediately press the same type of red button inside the panel on the Wii located between the eject and reset buttons (on the face).
If these steps don't work, try fresh new alkaline batteries and repeat.
Note that there have been lots of complaints using rechargable batteries. I've had the same alkalines in my unit for 3 months now. If insistent on using rechargables, I suggest buying several of the same battery and a quick (15 minute or 1 hr) charger as opposed to ANY after-market recharging product. It will be cheaper and more reliable.
You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
It sounds like your other TV had 2 tuners which allowed you to watch 2 programs at the same time. You can still watch two programs, but the second one will have to come from a second source. See below for the possible combinations that the PIP/POP feature can be used by this TV.
