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 picture in a picture?

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..

SOURCE: connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV

When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

Have you tried using component cables instead. One of my Time Warner cable boxes did the same thing using HDMI.

Can you connect a hd converter to a Toshiba cx 32 g60 tv


there isn't much point in connecting an hd converter the toshiba cx32g60. the tv can only support an sd signal (composite video or ntsc analog). however, many hd set-top boxes (dvd players, cable and satellite) have composite outputs. these can be connected to your tv. blu-ray videos can't be watched with this tv. (the hdcp (high definition copy protection) can't be sent through most converters.)

if you want to watch ota programming , the cheapest option would be to find an sd digital-to-analog converter. these were the ones sold when most stations switched to digital tuners. some are being sold off as people replace their old analog sets. there are some hd tuner boxes, like this one: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?mc=03&p=3500stb&d=iview-hd-dvr-receiverconverter-box-for-tv-antenna-qam-%283500stb%29&c=digital%20converter%20boxes&sku= , that have composite video output which will connect to the cx32g60.


i hope this helps.

(if you tried an hdmi to component video converter followed by a component to composite video converter, the signal may degrade excessively.)

I need to know what hooks on the back of the TV into the mother/sister to provide regular TV. Some sort of converter? Which kind?


The Protron PLTV-32 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). So you need a digital to analog converter to watch OTA programming. A basic d-t-a converter will give you Standard Definition output (480i) (either on the TVs antenna in or the composite in inputs).

Since the TV can show a high definition signal (720p), you could also use an HD tuner set top box. However, these are significantly more expensive than the $40-70 SD converter boxes that were sold for purchase with the government coupon last year. Alternatively you can use a DVR with a tuner as your set top box (computer with a tuner card) to the VGA or DVI inputs on the TV.

I hope this helps.

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

My antenna has a coax-my 50 in Maxent mx50X3 has no coax hook up. How do I connect these two?


That unit does not have a tuner so it does not have an antenna input. You need to connect a cable box, satellite box, VCR with a digital tuner (or an additional DTV box for converted input), or DVR to one of the HDMI, S-Video, or Component inputs to view TV.

How to hook up with new converter boxes


This TV has a Digital Tuner built in?

Unless you have some purpose I would use the internal tuner.

Anyway. Use the HDMI input to hook up the Converter and Component (Red, Green and Blue video) to connect the DVD. You can use component for the Converter as well since it is reasonably comparable to HDMI (HDMI is 1080P Component is 1080i but it is difficult/impossible to notice unles picture is 60 or larger)

61A61 TV IS WILL ONLY PICK UP ONE CHANNEL #66 AND NOT CABLE INPUT


Cable companies are slowly but surely reducing the channels you can get without a digital box, which they will supply. You will need to cantact them and rent a HD cable box or converter from them that will work with your displays built-in tuner. However, if your display is HD compatible, then I would just asked your cable company for and non-DVR HD cabe box and connect it to your display with component cables....

Aspect ratio, cuts off edges of picture.(NOT THE T.V, THE RECEIVER!)


Dilon, 311's have no aspect ratio adjustment and is not able to switch from the standard 4:3 setting therfore if it is connected to a TV with a large screen the TV has to stretch the picture to fill the screen thus cutting off portions of the picture. I suggest you get a HD receiver as they will be able to change the format and aspect ratio but even these make some sacrifices to fill the screen as well. Most notable of the losses will be the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen where sports scores usually are displayed. Thhis is all a result of the plethora of screen sizes on the market and will not be resolved anytime soon that I am aware. Dish has a 211 which is a one room HD receiver, 612 which is a one room dual tuner receiver with DVR, 222 which is a dual tuner two room receiver with HD capability to the first location and SD to the second, 622 and 722 which are both dual tuner two room DVR receivers with HD to the first location and SD to second. I am sorry I could not bear better news but I wanted to thank you for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.

Convertor box and Sony Wega with PIP (2 Tuners) and new Digital DVR/VCR


I wonder if the RF interference from the digital tuner. That box will only allow ouput either through the coax or the AV ports. If you do both you will not get a picture.

If you switch them you have to tell the box what your using for output by going through the setup process.

Is the Zenith 901 converter box for your cable TV.
