Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)

I've gone through all my inputs. But, I still don't receive any channel in my PiP screen. I can watch my DVD player and another channel on TV, but I can't watch two seperate TV channels at the same time. The PiP channel is always blank/gray/black. Please help.

Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Cannot record and view an alternative channel


I don't know what kind of TV service you have; cable, DirecTV, etc which will let you do this with their own DVRs so I am assuming you have none. To view one and watch the other, or to view PIP (picture within a picture) you will need a second source input; either VHS or DVD player or other tuner.

I have a sony bravia 32`` and i have pip on my tv but i cant selectionate that what i need to do?


picture in picture means you will need a second input for PIP to work. For example you are watching a movie on a dvd player thru the bravia if your antenna is also connected that becomes your second input. Therefore when you select PIP a small screen will appear and you will be able to see the channel that was last set on that screen... hope this helps

Main Picture has gone out


The first step would be to switch the inputs and see what you get. If that does not work then let me know and I will help with the troubleshooting.

No picture in picture regardless of any way I wire the tv HELP


Thank you for providing the exact brand and model number of your product.

What it is: PIP lets you watch a second program in a little window. More-elaborate versions can resize the window, move it around the screen, create still or multiple still images, or simply divide the screen into two same-size pictures, often called "picture-outside-picture" (POP).

What it isn't: PIP has a dirty little secret, though: If you use an external tuner such as a cable box or a satellite receiver, you can watch only one program at once. If some of your channels are unscrambled, you can watch those on the second window, and you can usually watch other sources such as VHS or DVD on it, as well. But even with two-tuner PIP, a single cable/satellite box will prevent you from watching two live scrambled channels simultaneously unless the box itself has two-tuner PIP.


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

My JVC PIP Won't work, pls help!


I was told that in order to view 2 different channels at the same time u have to subscribe to SKYCable and use the digital input instead of the antenna input and the antenna input you will have to use the regular antenna since there is only one tuner in the TV
