Channel no showing on tv

Since my boys have had their x box on the tv there is a large green "9 AV1 and a symbol showing underneath (like a square with an arrow pointing into it) in green taking up a lot of space on the left hand side - how do I get rid of it?

    I didnt know what a PIP was so I thought I would press every single button on the remote, I was guessing thats possibly all the boys did anyway. There was a button with i and a + on it and it did the trick! Whats a PIP then?!



    Cheers

    Great site I'm a right techophobe!

Hi,

Without knowing the brand and model of the TV, I can only venture that somehow the PIP feature has been engaged. Disable the PIP (using the remote).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again xxjanexx,

    Thank you for your postback and additional information.

    PIP stands for Picture in Picture that is you have the standard display then a smaller display superimposed on the larger one. This could be another channel while mainly watching another channel or could be your video/DVD/game input while watching regular TV programs. Additionally, the smaller display/box could just be basic information.

    Sorry but without knowing your TV's specific brand and model, I would not even venture a guess on the i and a +.

    Am glad that your concern is gone.

The TV probably defaults to the RF channels. If it is an analogue only tuner model then it will go to the last used/programmed RF channel.
