I'm trying to hook up picture in a picture with my TV using the HD dual tuner DVR DC H 6416 converter box. Is there a place that I can connect a cable to the box that has video out to use individually for...

The TV requires two inputs to use the PIP function. Your setup box Has multiple outputs, but the same picture comes out of all of them. The only way you can use PIP in your TV is to split the signal and connect it to both the set-top box and the TV. However; you will not receive the additional channels that the setup box picks up unless you use 2.

Some set top boxes already have PIP built in. If it does you can view a PIP display even if your TV does not have that feature. Because the cable box has 2 tuners built in they are designed to do two different things at one time. If yours has PIP capability they will proudly and prominently tell you about it in the instruction manual..

What are instructions for Split-screen TV? Used before, forgot.

You are referring to a picture-in-picture function on hour TV. It is usually done by a button on your remote control marked PIP - picture-in-picture. If your TV doesn't have this function you can get it by using your SET-TOP BOX, which supplied by your TV cable company. All modern remote controls fro those boxes have that ability. In this case you will be able to watch two channels at the same time, switching them around and control them the way you want.

My vizio flat screen has screen stuck in top right

Your TV is in Picture in Picture (PiP) mode. The small picture is the previous live input. The bigger dark area is the current input where there's no live source.

Find the PiP button on the TV remote or via the TV's menus. Press PiP a number of times to cycle through the options. Stop when the picture is the size you want.

Have a read of your TV manual. Stuff like this is detailed in there.

How to split my screen on my 60 inch LG plasma TV? My wife would like to watch a show while I play my PS3 at the same time?

Unless the set has a PIP feature (picture in picture) you cannot do it.

PS3 would be hooked to one input (selected for PIP) and tuner in set for the main picture.

Black square on screen that covers half the picture appeared on my 42" sharp aquos tv.

sounds like you might have PIP turned one (picture in picture) .. if there is no input hooked up for the PIP . you will just get a black screen ... you should be able to move that PIP around and change its size .. indeed turn it off .. look for a menu item called PIP .. select PIP off ..

How does PIP work ? where does the signal come from for the second picture ?

PIP uses the signal from a second tuner to insert a small or split-screen image on the main image. Some TVs have two tuners but most PIP applications need a signal from a VCR tape or tuner (tuner must be digital since 6/12), a DTV box, or a cable box for TV programs. A DVD player can also provide a signal for PIP if a DVD is playing. However some TVs will not allow PIP if the signal inputs are through the HDMI ports.
