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 ?

My picture in picture isn't working?

Most of these sets have two tuners--one for main and one for PIP.

If main picture works fine but PIP is bad or Green? either the PIP tuner or the PIP board is bad---these were known to have the PIP have problems but it was more rare than their sets made before it.

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)

Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

I am trying to run pip with x box in the pip and regular comp on main screen but it dosent work the xbox is hi def cables

What inputs are you actually using? If you use VGA as the main display, the PIP feature will work with DVI, 480i (SD) Component Video, S-Video, or Composite video. If you use DVI for the computer's input to the TV, the Component video PIP doesn't have the 480i limit.

Thus if you have VGA from the computer, Hi-def from the X-box isn't going to work. Note: The component video can not be the main screen with VGA input in PIP.

I hope this helps.

Pip on d52w20

when i was on digital cable my pip didnt work either. with sat, the box offers a pip feature. if you have basic cable or using an antanna the pip on your tv should work. maybe its just your cable or sat not allowing you to use that feature.

yes, PIP allows you to view 2 channels at one, one being the analogue picture another being a cable/freeview or sattelite picture, if you only use one of these to view programmes, you will se a blank screen.
