Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Pip and pop

Our new Vizio GV42L TV has the picture in picture.
We are having trouble in using this feature. We can get the PIP with
one TV channel and a DVD disc in use,(because we have a DVD hooked
up to the TV with a HDMI connection. We want to be able to watch two TV programs as we did on our old TV. Can you tell us how to get this feature
connected to our TV?
Thanks

    WE HAD OUR OTHER TV RUN THROUGH A VCR TO GET THE

    PIP, BUT WE CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO HOOK IT UP TO USE ON THE VIZIO. WE WILL KEEP TRYING BECAUSE WE KNOW IT NEEDS THE SECOND SOURCE.



    THANKS

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.

How to work pip in vizio tv


PIP or picture in picture works in two ways with the original remote--new sets with this actually have two tuners in them, one for main picture and one for PIP picture, you can change channels in both, swap the PIP to the main picture or even have both side by side.

Sure its got the PIP? what is brand and model number ?

How to program pip on my vizio


PIP (Picture-in-Picture)
Picture-in-Picture is a feature which allows you to watch two different signal inputs simultaneously, when
selected.
Press menu, go to set up (the wrench icon). Drop down one to the button and highlight the option.
Press the button to activate the PIP feature, which will bring up a display showing Style.
Press either the or button to select it to be either PIP, POP or OFF.
Press either the MENU key to return to the previous menu display or the EXIT key to return to your
program if task has been completed.
If PIP is selected, then you will have the options of selecting the Input (Refer to PIP mode on page 60 of
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

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.
